Office of the Secretary General

The Secretary General’s Office is the meeting point for the Institute’s General Government/circumscriptions and ecclesial/civil organizations. The office is in charge of the Institute’s archives, as well as its technical, translation and shipping departments.

Office of the Bursar General

The Bursar General’s Office serves the General Government and all the Institute’s circumscriptions by providing them with information in the economic sphere, by coordinating bookkeeping data and by teaching the sisters how to manage the Institute’s temporal goods in harmony with its apostolic activities. The purpose of the office is to foster communion and a sharing of goods–an expression of Pauline poverty–among the members of the Congregation.
