elcome to our Website

The Institute of the Religious Teachers Filippini was founded by Lucy Filippini and Cardinal Mark Anthony Barbarigo who, in 1692, looked ahead with a vision to fulfilling their generous, ardent and profound mission of faith and charity. The schools they founded were intended to promote the dignity of womanhood, and help influence a healthy family life.

St. Lucy Filippini and Cardinal Barbarigo founded schools of Christian Doctrine for girls in Italy. St. Lucy also ministered to the poor and the sick, conducted retreats and guided the women preparing for marriage. A contemplative in action, she blended her life of prayer with her life of ministry.

This website is dedicated to the founders of the Religious Teachers Filippini. In schools throughout the world, one still finds their methods at the basis of education -- that same imprint of goodness, meekness, fervor, and relationship to the times. 

These accomplishments will live on through a spiritual dimension in the mystical Body of the Church.
