From the beginning the Sisters have been very involved in the life of the parish and supporting the priests, the poor and the marginalised. They continue to provide hot meals for the elderly three days a week and organise a weekly ecumenical gathering.
In 1996 the Congregation helped to establish a school: Scoala Sfantul Iacob with two departments, Preschool and Primary and in 2000 the Secondary department was initiated. The Sisters are still involved in it as they encourage the development of a Christian education. This school received Accreditation status in May 2008. The Sisters’ charism is very much to the forefront of their minds as they encourage pupils from different types of backgrounds to be part of this school family. In 2016 the school received its first financial support from the Romanian government.
