Our Mission

The Pastoral Priorities of the Claretians in the United States and Canada include:

  • Missionary outreach to Catholics who have left the church that invites them to return home or become more active.
  • Evangelization of young adults, including the utilization of social media, to strengthen their faith and invite their greater participation in the church and its programs.
  • Greater ecumenical understanding and interreligious dialogue.
  • Evaluation and development of our ministerial presence within Hispanic communities.
  • Commitment to shared mission at all levels of our ministry.
  • Promotion and development of lay leadership in our ministries.
  • Solidarity with immigrants and refugees, and advocating for comprehensive immigration reform.
  • Pastoral response to family-life issues, especially domestic violence, divorce, alcohol and drug abuse, and disregard for the sanctity of human life.
  • Assuring the safety of children in all our ministries.
