Missionaries of the Divine Redeemer

Missionaries of the Divine Redeemer

The charism of the Missionaries of the Divine Redeemer is the announcement of the mystery of redemption to poor, orphaned and abandoned youth and to provide them with an integral education so that they can rejoin society. The Missionaries work to spread the Gospel message among the poorest and most marginalized through works of spiritual and corporal works of mercy, in order to advance the reign of Christ and provide a Christian influence on society as envisioned by Vatican II, the Pope and the Bishops.
