For the Spiritans, the journey into the future is not a guided tour, but rather an around-the-world adventure. On this adventure, the Holy Spirit is in charge, and the needs of the people on the side of the road will determine the stops we make. We go "where the spirit leads us," and while our mission is consistent, we respond to our changing world in Community, Global Ministries, Technology,Youth Ministry and Laity.
We come together in small group communities, to live a life of work and prayer in our diverse ministries. In the coming years we will create more inter-cultural communities throughout the world where religious and laity celebrate the unity of our common Spiritan life.
In Africa, we will continue our strong tradition of ministry to persons with AIDS, families of HIV/AIDS patients, and with treatment and education for AIDS orphans. We will also respond to the needs of the many refugees generated by civil wars and regional conflicts.
In Asia, we will create new frontiers of Christianity by pushing toward the interior. Even in countries where we are forbidden to openly evangelize, such as in most Islamic countries, we can have a witness of presence, solidarity and service. We are called to cross these boundaries in the hope of broadening Christ's community on earth, and to seek a new face of Christ in other cultures.
