Lay people associated with our mission

From the Constitutions of the Sons of the Holy Family, n.48

Lay people are associated by full right with the mission of our institute because of the common grace and calling of baptism. They offer excellent support in the furtherence of the cult of the Holy Family, in the Christian formation of families, in the training of children and of the youth, in the missions, and in the apostolic undertakings of our family.

On our part, we offer them a witness of nazarene poverty and work, of simplicity and prudence, of trust in God and restraint, of charity and obedience, of patience and peace, of religious dedication and joy in the Lord while we diligently assist them in spiritual matters. We recognize and further their dignity, their prosper freedom of action, and their consequent responsibility.
