ASSOCIATION OF MISSIONARIES OF UNITY
The special charism of AMU is to live the Word of God in all situations in view of unity with the Triune.
The Missionaries of Unity seek to live the charism of keeping Jesus in their midst by constantly living the commandment of love and work for the unity and integral development of people, especially of the poorest and marginalized members of the society. Their special apostolate is to dedicate themselves to the development of the spiritual and vocational skills of children and youths, especially of those who hail from the poorest families and sections of the society. They derive inspiration from the vision and life of Mar Ivanios, the servant of God, and commit themselves to the task of new evangelization by offering formation programs for children, youths and their parents. They also engage themselves in dialogue of life with Christians of all denominations and with people of other faiths and convictions in view of realizing the life-goal of Jesus that “all may be one”. The sisters live the spirituality of communion and work in collaboration with priests and lay missionaries who are dedicated to the same goal and live the same charism.
