What We Do


In the face of expanding needs and shrinking resources, we must continue to respond to the challenges of the times with faith, courage, trust and resourcefulness. Our lives must foster the human aspirations of the people served, communicate the reality of God's unconditional love and meet the needs of the poor, spiritually neglected, the sick, the uneducated and the abandoned. This calls for direct service, systemic change, advocacy and involvement in social issues. It also calls for the inner qualities of contemplative receptivity, openness to conversion and radical willingness to sacrifice for the sake of love.
