welcome note

The Community of the Missionaries of Jesus (MJ) is a religious missionary congregation founded in the Philippines in June 2002. In different countries, the MJ priests and brothers work in the margins of society; they cross boundaries, break barriers - working for a world of peace, justice and inclusivity. Those who live in the cities live and work with the marginalized and the poor.



"Do this in memory of me..."

We are called and sent to discover and uncover the face of Jesus Christ hidden in every human - scarred by poverty, ignorance, indifference, injustice and selfishness.

You can be an instrument of peace and love. Let God guide you in fulfilling your mission through us.
Not everyone can go to the mission but anyone can give for the mission. Send help!

We want to discover the different faces of Jesus today. We want to encounter him where he is to be found: a broken, suffering, disfigured and compassionate Jesus - discarded and crucified among the crucified people of today. The face of Jesus is revealed to us in the brokenness of people we serve.

"Missionaries of Jesus" and "Friends and Disciples" - our names indicate the essential relationships we foster in our spirituality: friendship with Jesus that flows into our group, with our partners in mission, and with people we serve

Ours is a spirituality inspired by the triple kenosis of Jesus, leading us to sharing the life of the people, journeying with the marginalized and taking risks. As friends and disciples, we want to live in community and friendship with people. We opt for the frontiers, the margins, the peripheries - and for the people who live there.
