You are invited to be a Friend of the Missionaries of the Holy Family! +JMJ+
In the last half century, the Catholic Family has undergone major changes and upheavals. Who knows better the difficulties and the challenges faced by families today than parents themselves? The Missionaries of the Holy Family seek to work with people who are committed to the pastoral care of families, especially through the promotion of a consistent prayer life. Inviting the laity to collaborate in the work of a religious institute has existed for many centuries in the form of Third Orders.
In establishing the Prayer Association of the Missionaries of the Holy Family, the Congregation is following in this great tradition. Those wishing to become members complete an application and mail it to our Provincial Superior. The Provincial then accepts the person as a "Friend" for a provisional period of two years. After two years, permanent membership can be requested. Permanent Members then receive a framed certificate of acknowledgment and thanksgiving from the Provincial.
