"We live for the poorest and the most disadvantaged. We try to make profound changes starting with their mentality.  Ideas like not getting carried away by consumerism, living in solidarity, helping the disadvantaged, giving them a voice. All this can be done by providing a complete education.”

St. Peter Poveda founded the Academy of Oviedo in 1911, which eventually gave life to the Teresian Institute. Before passing away, he left detailed writings about key points members should always have in mind. They include welcoming the Holy Spirit in one's life and putting Christ at the center of it all. Having a strong devotion to Mary and feeling a sense of belonging to the Church. As a group, it also welcomes the challenge of fighting poverty in society.
