Our Apostolate

Thomas Maria Fusco, was born at Pagani Salerno (SA) Italy in 1831. He was ordained a Priest in 1855. A most zealous Priest, he promoted the Cult of the Most Precious Blood in his local church. Understanding the needs of the times he directed his apostolate principally to the youth.

His Charity was directed to every form of need and poverty. Children, Youth, Laborers, the poor, the sick and the aged.

With fiery Zeal he also stirred up many Priestly and religious vocations to join him in his mission. Since his death on February 24,1891, his ministry towards the needy continues untiringly from heaven through his protection, paternal prayers and blessing, the Divine power of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus Christ and also through the institute founded by Him; Daughters of the Charity of the Most Precious Blood. This institute was founded on January 6th, 1873 (Epiphany of the Lord) with three Sisters and seven orphans and on the 5th of August 1912, the Congregation acquired a pontifical status, under the jurisdiction of Pope Pius X, and hence, subject to the jurisdiction of the Holy See.

The Congregation is in most countries of the world: Italy, USA, Brazil, India, Philippines, Indonesia, Nigeria and proximately our presence is felt in Cameroon.

Thomas Maria Fusco was beatified on the 7th of October 2001 by his holiness Pope John Paul II amidst the joy of his spiritual daughters, friends, well wishers of the Congregation, in union with the whole Church on earth, in accord with the triumphant Church in heaven. He is now known as -- Blessed Thomas Maria Fusco.

Our Spirituality and Charism
Our founder, drawing his logical inference said, "We must commit ourselves to derive and reflect the Most vivid image of that Divine Charity with which Christ's Blood was shed and of which that same Divine Blood was, and is a sign, an expression, a measure, and a pledge. Therefore, we always perceive in the Blood of Jesus not only the proof of His greatest Love, but also the Supreme and undisputable manifestation of the love that the father has for humanity. And this has been the "object of our love and adoration". The Crucifix is an object of Contemplat ion, reflection and meditation for us. For us, "He who studies the Crucifix well knows everything". We consider this point with a particular characterization Jesus gave and continues to give His Blood for the "Triumph of His mercy as a manifestation of His infinite love for us". It is this Divine Charity of the Blood that specifies and defines our identity as Daughters of the Charity of the Most Precious Blood

Our Apostolate
The Congregation is called upon to manifest the Divine Charity of the Blood of Christ in the world and in the Church through these ministries which bring salvation to her fellow men:
