We are Catholic lay missionaries responding to the Lord’s call to proclaim the Gospel and serve the poor here, and to the ends of the earth.
Our missionary vocation is a call from God. This vocation emerges from our relationship with God, a relationship rooted in constant prayer and praise.
We love the Word of God, it is always on our lips and in our hearts, it is the Truth that we proclaim.
We live fully the Sacraments that we have received. As missionaries we strive to fulfill our Baptismal calling as Priest, Prophet and King.
We take to heart Jesus’ prayer that we be “one,” and do nothing to compromise our unity. Yet we rejoice in our diversity - families and singles, young and old, men and women, find their place in FMC.
Our lives are poured out in service to one another and the people to whom God sends us.
We are Roman Catholic and we love the Catholic Church, and are formed and inspired by her teaching. We are universal in our scope of evangelization.
As missionaries we bear a twofold witness to the Gospel - through commitment to holiness of life and prayer, and through our verbal witness: preaching, teaching, and testifying.
We follow the movement and guidance of the Holy Spirit wherever and however He leads.
We live our lives in FMC more as a family than as an organization. We are brothers and sisters in Christ; our missionary communities are like “families” of missionaries.
We are obedient to authority - to Christ, to the Church, to our Bishops, to the leadership of FMC, and to the leaders of our families and teams.
The call to missions is a call to sacrifice. We lay down our lives, our homes, our cultures, our language, and even our families and friends, to follow Jesus to the very ends of the earth.
We are beggars for the Gospel. We detach ourselves from our possessions and live on the providence of others in order to serve the poor and live in solidarity with the poor.
