The apostolic work for the formation of the laity is truly in accordance with the spirit and example of our foundress who sought and achieved the holistic formation of lay people as contemplatives in a world of action, responsible citizens of society, and active members of the ecclesial communion. (HFJ Constitution No. 66)

The purpose of this work is to help promote the active and responsible involvement of the laity in the life and work of the Church so that they could go forth to renew the temporal order by engaging in secular activities with the spirit of Christ and values of the Gospel. This should be achieved through formation, retreats, and counseling. At the same time, collaboration with the laity must enhance the holistic development of our sisters. (HFJ Constitution No. 67)
