The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Administrative Committee has issued the following pastoral reflection in solidarity with those who have been forced to flee their homes due to violence, conflict or fear in their native lands.

You shall treat the alien who resides with you no differently than the natives born among you; you shall love the alien as yourself; for you too were once aliens in the land of Egypt” (Lev. 19:33-34). {MORE}

“Return to me with your whole heart.” (Joel 2:12)

Some time ago they were looking for a person who would be Christ in a  movie. After much searching, they found a young man whose face and good manners seemed to reveal his remarkable lifestyle. A good while later it was a matter of finding another man to play the part of Judas in the same movie.

   Our Mission & Vision

G2Inspired by St. Guido Conforti and St. Francis Xavier, we, Xaverian Missionaries, serve to keep the local Church aware of, engaged with and connected to the missionary mandate of the universal Church, principally by witnessing Jesus to those who have yet to know Him.

We strive to inspire a new generation to the challenges this mission offers us today in a diverse and pluralistic world:

  • Intercultural and interfaith dialogue;
  • Advocacy for and solidarity with the poor;
  • Sharing the legacy of our founder, St. Guido Conforti;
  • Telling the stories and witness of our missionaries in the variety of ministries and countries where we serve.
