ANSWERING THE CALL…
The vision and mission of the Community of the Crucified one is simple: go into the highways and byways of life and tell the world of God’s love. The Missionary Outreach program was established to fulfill this call. The Missionary Outreach is comprised of vowed Christian members of The Brothers and Sisters of the Community of the Crucified One from all ages and walks of life who are bound together by a common desire to spread the love of Jesus Christ to everyone they meet. As vowed Franciscans, these Christian missionaries live a life of order and prayer. They strive, as St. Francis did, to reach out not only with words of Christ’s love, but more importantly with their example of that love in daily life and Christian ministries alike.
Being a missionary could mean extending a smile or a kind word to someone in the street or helping with one of our local Christian ministries, or traveling thousands of miles to serve orphans in a foreign land through one of our mission trips. We believe you step into the mission field when you walk out of your front door. The primary goal of the Missionary Outreach, however, is carrying Jesus’ love beyond our borders and around the world. To this end, the Missionary Outreach sponsors a number of Christian mission works in various parts of the world.
