Lay Missionaries of Charity

The Lay Missionaries of Charity, founded in Rome on April 16, 1984, are a lay branch of the Missionaries of Charity of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta.  

The patron of the LMCs is the Holy Family of Nazareth, the model of life and source of inspiration.

The spirit of the Lay Missionaries of Charity is one of total abandonment to God's holy will, child-like trust in His Fatherly care, and readiness for service in profound humility after the example of Jesus, Mary and Joseph.

The aim of the lay Missionaries of Charity is to quench the infinite thirst of Jesus on the Cross for the love of souls.

The special mission of the LMCs is to work for the salvation and the sanctification of the members of their own families and of the poorest of the poor of the whole world.
