The new Society would send into any social area where needs arose, women consecrated to the Lord, competent in their fields of service, contemporary in their approach.

Sister Margaret was a woman of great courage and broad vision who saw the social mission of the Church as embracing all of the pressing needs of the human family.

The scope of the ministry was conceptualized by her in the form of a pyramid. The base of the pyramid consists of the works of charity. The second level comprises social service. The third level consists of movements, and the top of the pyramid is the political ministry.
