Laity

In the mission of the Congregation

Many of the persons with whom we work are lay Christians and participate in one way or another in the mission of the Congregation. We are happy to recognize the action of the spirit which has awakened in them diverse ways of sharing our Charism: Students, volunteers, lay groups, Presentation groups of laity, Dominican missionaries, fraternities, collaborators, and associates, among others. From all of them we receive their richness, questionings and talents.

In our multicultural world, sharing and solidarity is necessary to construct a more just and fraternal society more in accord with what God wants for humanity. It depends on all of us, Christians or not, believers or not, in the daily sharing of life as in the projects of great significance. Civil society offers us through its governmental and nongovernmental organizations, (NGO) opportunities to form alliances to unite our strengths with those who share our concerns and values. The accompaniment of persons and marginalized groups and the ecological concerns could be areas for common actions.
