Pastoral Plan of the Sons of the Holy Family, #5: Our Pastoral Answer

Confronting the great challenges of our time, we take very seriously the Lord’s command: “Go and make disciples of all nations.” The Church calls us to proclaim the good news from the Nazarean identity we received from Saint Joseph Manyanet, defined in the Constitutions and carried out through the tradition of the Institute.

Our pastoral service stems from our consecration and also from:

a. Our communion in an austere and humble life, imitating the Holy Family of Nazareth.

b. Our communion in prayer, visiting every day the house of prayer of the Holy Family of  Nazareth.

c. Our communion in action, announcing the values of the Gospel of Nazareth through our ministry to families, which finds its inspiration in the Holy Family of Nazareth.

The Lord Jesus, from the boat of Peter, continues inviting us to “put out into deep water.” Peter and the apostles trusted in Jesus’ word and cast their nets. We, faithful to the Holy Spirit, are called to do the same.
