Changing the Lives of Disadvantaged Communities

Changing the Lives of Disadvantaged Communities

When you wake up in the morning, you might throw off the covers of a warm bed, fry up a tasty pan of bacon and eggs, take a hot shower and head out the door to your job. It’s hard to imagine anything less. But the fact is, millions of people around the world are struggling due to a lack of basic resources. Nearly half of the world’s population lives on less than $2.50 per day. Their lives are filled with uncertainty, and many are in desperate need of the basic resources we often take for granted.
Our Dignified Living projects allow us to change the lives of disadvantaged brothers and sisters in Christ around the world by meeting their physical and spiritual needs.

Dignified Living Patron

Saint Therese of Lisieux
Patron of the Missions

Therese was the youngest of 9 siblings only 5 of which survived
childhood. She followed all 4 of her elder sisters into the convent. With special permission from the Pope, she entered Carmel at 15 years old where she consecrated her life to God as a Carmelite
contemplative. Therese prayed and sacrificed for God’s kingdom to grow throughout the world. She taught her “Little Way,” which taught that what mattered to God was not extraordinary actions but ordinary actions done out of extraordinary love. She died at 24 of tuberculosis and her journal became a best-selling spiritual classic called Story of a Soul. She was made a doctor of the Church and a copatron of the Church’s evangelizing missions with Saint Francis Xavier.
