Consolata Missionaries

Consolata Missionaries

The Consolata Missionaries are a family of priests and lay people committed to bringing the Gospel to the world. They are consecrated and therefore dedicated to the Mission totally, without constraints of any kind, and therefore profess poverty, chastity and obedience in the spirit of the Beatitudes. They look beyond the territorial boundaries of country, nation, parish or diocese. Like Mary, who venerate with the title of Consolata, the Consolata Missionaries want to bring to the world the true Consolation, which is Jesus.
