APOSTOLATE SOMASCAN FATHERS

Apostolic Mission

From its very beginning, for the good of the Church, and in order to respond to the appeals of her shepherds our Congregation has undertaken various apostolic activities inspired by the love of Christ . With the same intense love of its Founder, our Congregation continues to devote herself to the material and spiritual care of orphans and the poor , undertakes the human and Christian education of youth and pastoral ministry.

Example of Saint Jerome Emiliani

The Congregation suggests to her religious some of those attitudes which inspired St. Jerome and his first companions. She urges all its sons to witness through their deeds their faith and hope in the Lord4, to serve the least and the needy with humility and fervor, to welcome them with simple and benign heart, and to prefer those areas where poverty is more critical. She also encourages them to offer the living nourishment of God’s Word and Sacraments to those to whom she is sent, to help them grow in faith through suitable catechesis, to gradually introduce them to personal and community prayer, to foster their Christian testimony and apostolic commitment in the Church, and to cultivate the seeds of a religious or priestly vocation in those who manifest the signs of the Lord’s call

1. Apostolic Nature

Our Congregation

is directly ordered to apostolic

mission.

Her life and structures are

permeated

by the spiritual and functional

needs that flow from it 1.

Each religious is part of it

and consecrates his own

energies to it,

whatever the situation he may be

in

or the kind of activity

obedience assigns him to.

2. Apostolic Mission in the

Church

Our Congregation

shares in the apostolic mission of the Church through a spirit of humble and active collaboration and by promoting initiatives consistent with her charism.

3. Apostolic Activities and

Our Charism

The Congregation views the service to Christ present in the poor as a characteristic component of her apostolic mission 2 and finds constant inspiration for it in her Founder and tradition, which is authoritatively recognized by the Church. Each community, in its various areas of apostolate, is to engage itself for the poor and needy youth, make its acquaintances and collaborators sensitive to their needs, and cooperate with the initiatives of the Church and society.  

4. Community Dimension

of Our Apostolate

Apostolic activities are community oriented in our houses. All religious are called to render the Congregation’s charism alive and effective by the richness of gifts they received from the Lord. It is the Superiors’ duty to discern with spirit of humility and love the personal gifts of their brothers and to promote them for the good of their community and the Congregation.
