Formation of the Helpers of Mount Rosary Sisters, 

Helpers of Mount Rosary, study the World of God from the Bible very deeply, through Scripture classes, through reflection and meditation by learning and reciting the Office of the Church daily and through prayer sessions and sharing the Gospel through the seven step method. Having learnt the Word of God and understanding what the Lord wants, the Sisters participate in the daily Eucharist and strengthened by Holy Communion, they live according to the will of God, daily inspired by the meditation of the Word of God. This ensures the holiness and life of charity of our Sisters.

Presently there are 56 Professed Sisters and 20 trainees. Beside this, there are nine students studying in High School and Pre- University who desire to be sisters in the future. The sisters daily pray for religious vocations, not so much for numbers but more of fervour.
