The Community of the Missionaries of Jesus

The Missionaries of Jesus (MJ) is an international and multicultural religious missionary community. It was founded in the Philippines on 12 June 2002 by a group of forty-one men called and inspired by the mission and humanity of Jesus, who calls us to “make disciples of all nations” (Mt 28:19).

We are sent to frontier situations to witness and proclaim to the nations the presence and the coming of God’s Reign. With deep respect and in a spirit of dialogue, we approach peoples of other cultures, traditions, and faiths. We firmly believe that the inculturation of the gospel is a mutual enrichment and critical interaction between faith and culture.

Led by the Spirit of Jesus Christ, we are challenged to give prophetic witness to and live out radically God’s option for the poor with whom we live and act in solidarity. We work for and are in solidarity with the marginalized sectors of society, e.g., the indigenous communities, the urban poor, migrant workers, refugees, and displaced populations. We are partners in their aspiration for a new humanity rooted in Jesus Christ. Our objective is the promotion of the universality of the Christian message through presence (witness and dialogue of life), proclamation, and prayer.
At present, we are working in the Philippines in the Diocese of Antipolo, the Diocese of Baguio, the Archdiocese of Davao, the Prelature of Marawi, the Apostolic Vicariate of San Jose in Occidental Mindoro, and in various places in Metro-Manila. We are also engaged in the Diocese of Lae in Papua New Guinea, in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles in the USA and in the Apostolic Vicariate of Peten in Guatemala.
