“GOOD NEWS…that is the meaning of the word GOSPEL. This is the real meaning of ‘evangelical’…Or, as Pope Francis encourages us, in his introduction to the Jubilee Year of Mercy, ‘I ask my brother Bishops to welcome missionaries so they can be persuasive preachers of mercy… heralds of joy and forgiveness.’” ~Fr. Jack Conley, CP

“Missions renew people in their faith journey, or help them to pray more meaningfully. For others, they begin a whole new relationship with God. Some discover the motivation and grace to move and change. Others celebrate forgiveness for their sins and begin again.” ~Fr. Cedric Pisegna, CP
“Preaching is an honored Passionist tradition. There is true power in the Word. Preached missions can offer the experience of a moment of grace.” ~Fr. Bob Weiss, CP
