We desire to contribute to the ongoing renewal of the Church. Our strategy is one of evangelization – namely that we seek to invite all people into an initial and ongoing encounter with Jesus. As we are transformed by his love, we bring about authentic renewal in the Church and world.
We have great diversity in our membership and likewise our works are many and diverse – limited only by our commitment to living in community, and fulfilling our mission of evangelization.
Since it is in the local parish community that most people experience the Church, we consider this environment to be one of the primary places for our ministry. We also engage in specialized ministries such as:
- renewal of the parish community
- youth movements and university chaplaincies
- healing and renewal ministries
- missions of evangelization
We believe that the mobilization of the whole Church is essential for authentic renewal. We strive to form lay people, call them into active service, and be united with them in fulfilling the mission of the Church.
Wherever we minister, we place special emphasis on ministry to the poor, to youth, and to those estranged from the Church.
We desire to be a transforming presence in the Church and the world.
