We are called to…
proclaim the Gospel…
dialogue and seek reconciliation…
work for justice and peace…
celebrate and break bread…
welcome friends and co-disciples…
We, the Missionaries of Jesus,
Friends and Disciples of Jesus,
heard and responded to God’s call to mission.
Coming from and going to different cultures, traditions and histories,
we witness a face of the Church scarred by the experiences
woundedness and brokenness
isolation and marginalization
exclusion and dislocation
fear and resignation.
We are called to assist in the emergence of a new face of the Church
and we journey together
integrating into the life of the people,
in reclaiming their stories,
in the struggle of self-determination,
in the celebration of life and culture.
As we partner with institutions and people of goodwill,
we are called to mutual conversion and transformation
building inclusive communities of faith,
breaking walls and building bridges,
reconciling ourselves with and
being faithful stewards of God’s creation
This is our story in retelling God’s Story of mission.
May the passion for God’s mission
continue to burn in our hearts!
