Ad Gentes Missionary Sisters is a religious community of avowed women committed to participating in the liturgical life of the ecclesial community as agents of evangelization especially in rural and inner city communities. Sisters profess evangelical vows of chastity, poverty, and obedience.
AD GENTES BROTHERS
Ad Gentes Brothers is a new religious community of avowed men. We share a communal life in the model of the early church where the body of Believer was united in heart and soul (ACT 4:32). We are inspired by the words of Christ that continued to echo "Go, therefore , make disciples of all nations" (Mt. 28:19). We are focused on serving the pastoral needs of inner city youths, and others with limited resources, such as new immigrants, migrants workers, delinquent youths and teen drug users.
