The Teresian Association is an international Catholic lay association of men and women called together to make Jesus present in today's world through living out the gospel values in everyday life.

Its objective is the human promotion of individuals and the transformation of unjust structures by means of an education and culture imparted from the platform of Christianity.  Its members are men and women that, according to their specific vocation and professions, strive to live the Christian vocation in the world “after the style of the first Christians” as its founder St. Pedro Poveda desired.

The members fulfil their mission mainly through the practice of their professions. They are involved in education and research, social work, family ministry, pastoral work, social programmes, and civil service.

The Association is engaged in different educational, socio-cultural and humanitarian endeavours and is present in 30 countries, with thousands of members and collaborators.
