Who we are
We, the Comboni Missionaries of the Heart of Jesus of the North American Province, responding in faith to the call of God to a personal relationship to Christ, are called to witness to the Father’s love as a community of brothers, sharing in the Church’s missionary task to witness and proclaim through community and individual words and deeds to a world characterized by injustice and oppression the liberating and justifying power of the Gospel in a cross-cultural context, giving preference to “the poorest and most abandoned” through service in building the Christian Community.
