Who We Are
Our mode of proceeding is to trace the footprints of God everywhere, knowing that the spirit of Christ is at work in all places and situations and in all activities and mediations that seek to make him more present in our world.
General Congregation 35 (2008)
PRIEST AND BROTHERS, AND IN COLLABORATION WITH SO MANY LAY COLLEAGUES, we are servants of Christ participating in the Church’s overall mission of evangelisation.
- We seek to proclaim Christ’s love by our service of the poor and our work for justice
- We seek to uncover his presence in our world through our engagement with culture and through dialogue with men and women of other faiths
- We seek to promote his kingdom by being instruments of reconciliation, in humanity’s relationship with God, with creation, and amongst peoples.
We are sent to where the needs are greatest, and in particular to the frontiers where faith and culture meet, where peoples of different faiths and no faith encounter one another. As Pope Benedict XVI has said, we need to reach 'those physical and spiritual places which others do not reach or have difficulty in reaching.'
