God in His goodness willed that the charism of our Holy Founder St.Vincent Pallotti be realized in the Indian soil in the year 1984 when our sisters in the General Administration took initiative to venture in to the Indian soil with the request of the Pallottine Fathers in India to start our congregation. The first missionary late Sr.Magdala Schneider arrived to prepare the soil for our existence in 1984 while the first three pioneers were taken to Belize – Central America for the Initial Formation and thereafter every year some candidates went to Belize. Altogether they were 25 of them.

The first three sisters from Belize returned after their formation in the year 1986, August to Goa where our first house is situated. In the year 1992 we began our Novitiate in India – Goa, from then the rest of the formation began to function under our own sisters.

Every beginning  has  its own ups and downs, pains and sorrows. During this beginning struggles we had to accept God’s will when our dear Sr. Magdala Schneider, the first missionary, went to the Lord, as she suffered brain malaria. A person full of zeal for the Lord was an exemplary missionary who paved the way to continue the mission of Christ. Today we are proud to carry on this missionary zeal in the six states of India with various apostolates:
Goa
Tamil Nadu
Orissa
Karnataka
Maharashtra
Chattisgarh

The number of sisters are:   51
The number of houses:         8
The number of Novices:         6

Although we may be engaged in a variety of ministries, we all share the common call to apostolic discipleship in a community of the Catholic Apostolate of St. Vincent Pallotti."(OWL, 91)

"As Pallottines, it is our special charism to foster growth in faith and love among the laity, to awaken them to awareness of their apostolic call, and to cooperate with them in furthering the apostolic mission." (OWL, 21)

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
