Our Ministries

"The Mission of Consolation of Christ is to respond to God's call through ministries of prayer and service".
"To intensify the apostolic activity of the people of God, the most holy synod earnestly addresses itself to the laity, whose proper and indispensable role in the mission of the Church has already been dealt with in other documents. The apostolate of the laity derives from their Christian vocation and the Church can never be without it. Sacred Scripture clearly shows how spontaneous and fruitful such activity was at the very beginning of the Church" (cf. Acts 11:19-21; 18:26; Rom. 16:1-16; Phil. 4:3). POPE PAUL VI, APOSTOLICAM ACTUOSITATEM

What you hold, may you always hold.  What you do, may you always do and never abandon.  But with swift pace, light step and unswerving feet, so that even your steps stir up no dust, go forward securely, joyfully and swiftly, on the path of prudent happiness.

-from the writings of St. Clare

Write down your guiding goal in life. Is the fulfillment you seek the same as that proclaimed by Jesus?
