A MINISTRY OF ENCOUNTER

OUR VISION

At Christ in the City, our vision is to create a culture of encounter, where each person is seen, known, and loved. The following video breaks down our approach and highlights simple ways you can join us from wherever you are!

FOUR PILLARS OF FORMATION

SPIRITUAL

To bring the love of Christ to others, we must first experience Him ourselves. Missionaries are guided to deepen their relationship with Christ through personal prayer, Mass, Liturgy of the Hours, and spiritual direction.

INTELLECTUAL

Education in the Catholic faith and it’s teachings equip us to apply faith and reason to our daily work and lives. Missionaries take accredited courses from the Augustine Institute and University of Mary.

HUMAN

Community life serves as the overall context to live the mystery of Divine Love. Whether it be cooking, cleaning, laughing, or just spending time together, it is the first space to learn how to be a missionary through loving and giving oneself, sincerely forgiving each other, and holding each other accountable in becoming saints.

APOSTOLIC

In teams of 3, we walk the same street routes regularly befriending the homeless. As trust is built, we are able to accompany our friends on the street to medical, housing, or prenatal appointments, or to enjoy healthy friendships over coffee. Often times, this friendship becomes a turning point toward restoring their sense of self-worth.

“If you don’t love yourself, come here and they’ll love you until you can.”
