What We Do
Today RSCJ around the world carry out our mission in three main ways, which are known as ministries:
- Teaching & Formation (for example, we run schools and universities, support youth groups, and provide adult education and family services)
- Human Development & Justice (we promote integral human development and serve those whose development is impeded or whose human rights are not respected)
- Pastoral Ministry & Guidance in Faith (for example, we train catechists and undertake catechetical, parish, and diocesan work. We also participate in forming Christian communities, give retreats and spiritual direction, and engage in ecumenical dialogue)
(see Supplement to the Constitutions of 1982, n 13)
Ministries in Australia & New Zealand
Teaching & Formation
For a recent update on the status and responsibility of our ongoing charism in our schools in Australia:
Human Development & Justice
Members of our province actively raise awareness, pray and advocate across a range of issues concerning justice, peace and the integrity of creation.
Pastoral Ministry & Guidance in Faith
We engage in a wide variety of pastoral work and spirituality ministries. These include spiritual direction, leading retreats, providing family support and visiting the sick and the elderly. We also do parish and neighbourhood work.
