"Formal and informal education are not something on the margins of our apostolate but an integral part of our mission of evangelisa-tion. This conviction is based on two considerations: on the one hand, this social ministry to the poor brings them freedom and pro-motes the dignity that is theirs as children of God; on the other, the contact it gives with the world of young people provides an opportu-nity for passing on the Good News, above all through the witness of the life of the educator.
