Luciana works and coordinates Cristo da Rua, “Christ of the Street”, which is an apostolate of Regnum Christi that seeks to bring affection, dignity and hope to people living on the street, through ongoing visits. The objective of the apostolate is to bring the love of Christ to people and promote the dignity of the human person; going out to meet people, getting to know them, calling them by name and creating bonds of friendship.

Consecrated Women seek to carry out the command of Jesus to love one’s neighbor and help them in their concrete needs, promoting works or institutions that serve disadvantaged people and those with limited economic opportunities, such as the pastoral care of the sick, imprisoned, and activities that promote the dignity of each person.
