Our Mission

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).

Our Vision

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).

Our Calling
“We seek the unity of our lives and our apostolate in the Passion of Jesus.” The Passionate express their participation in the Passion by a special vow, by which they bind themselves to keep alive the memory of the Passion of Christ.
Our Method
The power of the Cross which is the Wisdom of God, gives us strength to discern and to remove the causes of human suffering we wish to share in the distress of all especially those who are poor and neglected; we seek to offer them comfort and relieve burden of their sorrow.
Our Culture
The Church urges us to keep constantly alive in the hearts of the faithful the memory of the passion, in which the love of our savior is so eminently expressed. Through our life in community and meditation on the Passion of Jesus we render more and more fruitful service to humanity.
