When it comes to presenting what we Theatine do, it will always be good to refer to art. 32 of our current constitutions:
«Our particular form of religious life, inspired by the Acts of the Apostles, requires above all, giving everywhere a witness of the resurrection of the Lord, to persevere devoted to prayer and to the Ministry of the Word, to expend and wear ourselves out for the salvation of the brothers. We must therefore consider as proper to our state any task, work or ecclesiastical ministry, especially if obedience or charity drives us to do so».
The Theatine are therefore dedicated to everything in which the ministerial priesthood is involved, beyond the realisation of a particular pastoral activity
Today our action is concentrated in parishes and schools, which extends to the attention of other religious communities, in the teaching of classes in areas other than our school institutes and in the accompaniment of various situations of personal and social difficulty.
