One way to carry out our service of education is in an institution for the formation of youth through teaching.
This service of education in institutions includes instruction, but emphasizes the formation of the whole person, formation for social and collective life, accompaniment of the faith, with a definite goal: education for justice in faith.
Today we have varied apostolic commitments within institutions which themselves differ from one another according to the age of the young with whom we work, the type of instruction given, or the composition of the student body.
