Our Mission for Family and Life
Our vision and mission statement reads:
are an evangelistic and missionary community committed to
become families empowered by the Holy Spirit to renew the
face of the earth. We strive for holiness of life, as we commit
to renew the temporal order through our work with the poor,
our work for justice, and our work for life. We are a servant
of the Church, working to renew her children through every
generation and throughout the world, until the Lord returns

affirm our call to evangelization as our
primary thrust, in accordance with Jesus’ commission
in Mark 16:15 and Matthew 28:19. What is evangelization? It
is proclaiming the good news of salvation in Jesus. This work
is to be done throughout the whole world. This in turn is
the missionary dimension of our call.
is through and by the family. The family is both the object
and the subject of evangelization. The condition of families
will determine the condition of societies and of the whole
world. Strong families are also the base on which our work
will proceed. As John Paul II says: “The future of humanity
passes by way of the family.” Thus we affirm the priority
of our evangelistic work, which is marriage and family life.
Evangelization and family come together in our Family Ministries.
Our Family Ministries provide us a womb-to-tomb
family renewal process, and the way for our work to be passed
on through the generations, until the Lord returns once again.

life. We are strongly and proactively pro-life. We will promote
the culture of life. This is done through our Pro-Life
the culture of life can only thrive in a societal environment
that is more and more reflective of the kingdom of God in
our midst. As such, we will also strive to do our share in
renewing the temporal order, aside from our spiritual work.
This is concretized in our Social Ministries,
our work of building the Church of the Poor. Here we will
not necessarily get involved in all social concerns, but will
choose our battles, where the Lord leads us. Currently, these
are in three areas: our work of building integrated communities
among the poor, our prison ministry, and our work with migrants.
Other aspects of the social dimension—such as health,
education, livelihood, the environment—will be support
we are an evangelistic and missionary community. Everything
we do is about evangelization, as it is about Jesus Christ
the Savior, and about this good news that we proclaim to the
world. Our evangelization in turn is composed of three major
thrusts—the Family Ministries, the Social Ministries,
and the Pro-Life Ministry.
all these, the Lord can only work to the full extent of the
power of the Holy Spirit if we are holy instruments. And so
we look to the call to holiness and strive to walk the way
of Jesus, which is the way of the cross.
