VISION OF THE INSTITUTE

We are a multicultural Catholic community of disciples striving to witness to a new way of being Church in a region characterized by diverse cultures, religious traditions, widespread poverty and rapid social change.

MISSION STATEMENT

We commit ourselves, following the way of Jesus Christ, to serve the churches of Asia and the Pacific in their mission to share the Good News as leaven in the transformation of cultures and societies towards the value of God's reign.

We provide programs for the integral formation and renewal of the laity, religious and ordained ministers. In a supportive intercultural environment that facilitates personal growth and community life, the participants are helped to be more:

  • Reflective and discerning of their personal and spiritual journey.
  • Rooted in their social, cultural, and religious situations in a global context.
  • Conversant with biblical and theological insights.
  • Committed to the dialogue with the poor and with people of different faiths and cultures.
  • Familiar with multidisciplinary perspectives needed for this triple dialogue.
  • Equipped with analytic tools, pastoral approaches and skills for their ministry.
