"Purpose, Meaning and... Success?" :  Are we living each day fulfilling our "purpose" to know God and to love God, or are we striving for the "success" that the world tells us to pursue?

Ad Limina Visits from the UK


In Thailand, as missionaries, we are committed to the first proclamation of the Gospel, which "introduces humanity into the mystery of the love of God" (RMi 44) and set the person and any human community free. At the moment in Thailand we have two communities: one in the north-west of the country, in a multi-tribal context close to the border with Myanmar; the other in Bangkok, "inserted" in a poor area and "mixed" with lay people. Both the communities are open to welcome volunteers, both Thai and foreigners, involving them in our community dynamics and considering them both as a help and a challenge for our missionary lifestyle. Learn more.
