A missionary spirit is not confined to those people who join a missionary religious order. In fact, with our baptism, we are all called to be missionary, to help bring about the Kingdom of God on earth through the circumstances of our own lives.
Some lay people find that they are in a life situation where they can become lay missionaries either in Australia or overseas, through volunteer organisations like PALMS Australia or through associations with other organisations.
Others may spread the Gospel through Parish ministries, including teaching children the faith as a catechist, being a Lector at Mass, getting involved in social justice initiatives, or helping people to understand the faith through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.
Simply living in the spirit of Jesus Christ is a powerful witness to those around us and marks us out as a missionary in the modern world.
You can support us as Missionary priests and brothers by staying in touch with us and our activities and spreading the news about our works.
