We the Passionist family of priests, brothers and laity reach out with compassion to the crucified of today; keeping with our commitment to the primal call to keep alive the memory of the Passion through community life, prayer ministry of the Word and Sacraments, enlightening young minds, care for creation and service to the needy. We seek to heal and be healed by the power of the Cross. (Congress-2013).
We, the Passionists in India, are a living community of brothers. We find our identity in our life together and in mission to the Crucified of today. We find the Crucified both within India and beyond. “We seek to be ingenious in finding ways to preach the Word of the Cross wherever we find ourselves.” With our wider Passionist family we share both this life and mission.Authentic Passionist community life and mission requires of us financial stability, which is the mark of the poverty our founder called us to. In this manner we seek to continue our journey to full incorporation into the Congregation of the Passion as a Province.Thus we embrace our future together. (Congress-2017).
