Welcome to Missionaries of Jesus

The Community of the Missionaries of Jesus (MJ) is a religious missionary congregation founded in the Philippines in June 2002. In different countries, the MJ priests and brothers work in the margins of society; they cross boundaries, break barriers – working for a world of peace, justice and inclusivity. Those who live in the cities live and work with the marginalized and the poor.

Who is Jesus?
Who do you say that I am?
We want to discover the different faces of Jesus today. We want to encounter him where he is to be found: a broken, suffering, disfigured and compassionate Jesus - discarded and crucified among the crucified people of today. The face of Jesus is revealed to us in the brokenness of people we serve.
Who are We?
Lord, who do you say that we are?
"Missionaries of Jesus" and "Friends and Disciples" - our names indicate the essential relationships we foster in our spirituality: friendship with Jesus that flows into our group, with our partners in mission, and with people we serve.

Where do you live?
Ours is a spirituality inspired by the triple kenosis of Jesus, leading us to sharing the life of the people, journeying with the marginalized and taking risks. As friends and disciples, we want to live in community and friendship with people. We opt for the frontiers, the margins, the peripheries - and for the people who live there.
