The heart has reasons which reason does not know. An intuition of love and service prompted Msgr. Edwin C. Pinto a very dynamic Priest to start the Congregation of Helpers of Mount Rosary on September 15, 1990. The Sublime words of Jesus “ I have come not to be served but to Serve” gave immense meaning to our Founder’s mission as a servant of the Poor. ‘Cross is my Treasure’ is our Motto.

Jesus washed the feet of His Apostles and then He told them: “If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you also should do as I have done to you”(Jn 13:13-14). In our commitment to follow Christ who “came not be served but to serve’, our life is characterized by this “washing of feet” that is service to the poor and needy. In this manner, we the sisters, Helpers of Mount Rosary intend to go where Christ went and to do what He did. We learn from Mary who lived with her eyes fixed on Christ, treasuring His every word, who is the sublime example for our life of Consecration and commitment. ‘The ROSARY’, which is the compendium of the Gospel, which we pray everyday with Mary, is the source of strength of Helpers of Mount Rosary together with the daily Eucharist and Word of God.

I am happy and grateful to welcome each and every one of you who view this website of Helpers of Mount Rosary to join hands with us in our mission of proclamation ‘whatsoever you do to the least of my brethren that you do unto me”
