"Holiness is not the luxury of a few. It is everyone's duty: yours and mine."  ~Mother Teresa

The Lay Vocation

Our Movement known as the Lay Missionaries of Charity, is an International Association of lay persons, both married and single, who take juridically private annual vows of (conjugal) chastity, poverty, obedience and whole-hearted free service to the poorest of the poor, lived according to each one's own state of life.

It is a life marked by prayer and a spirit of joyful sacrifice within their own families and in the heart of the world, and thus involves living an upright and holy life in every place, consecrating the world entirely to God, aided by a Spiritual Father who understands and shares the spirit of the Missionaries of Charity.  The Lay Missionaries of Charity are intimately linked to and spiritually affiliated with the family of the Missionaries of Charity, founded by Blessed Teresa of Calcutta, and fully recognise the Magisterium of the Church, and respect and obey it's ministers.
