Mission

Embracing life at the crux of spirit and flesh--at the intersection of human and divine--we seek to facilitate life-changing encounters with the Living God. Having ourselves encountered Christ, the Word Made Flesh, we cannot keep from singing His praises in all that we do and think and say, in all that we hope for on behalf of others, namely that all might come to the saving friendship of Christ through our shared works of corporal and spiritual works of mercy. We are the heart and hands of St. Paul living in the world today. With the inspiration and guidance of Blessed James Alberione, we live that spirituality which caused St. Paul to say, "It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. "

People Helping People

People Helping People is an annual fundraiser for those in the most desperate situations. Currently, our 2019 PHP Campaign is raising funds for the economically distressed Venezuelan people suffering from a severe lack of food and medicine in the Diocese of Maturin, Monagas, Venezuela. Our 2018 People Helping People campaign raised funds for dalits in India under the care of Fr. Jesudoss Perianayagam, a Salesian priest working in rural India, where often the poorest people live in the forest or in huts. In 2017, we raised funds for a local immigrant student to attend a Catholic high school in Chattanooga, Tennessee. We believe that to follow the Way of Jesus, we must first give what we have to the poor. Jesus said, "...Give to the poor and then come follow Me." Donations received go 100% to the identified need.

  • Who are the people you serve with your mission?

    We have an online following from among the members of the broader Pauline Family of institutes of consecrated life.

  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    We are a grassroots organization. Last year, a number of interested parties gathered virtually to discuss a language barrier problem and brainstormed a solution. The Executive Director then implemented the solution with the support of other think-tank leaders, who offered monthly retreat reflections in a virtual setting in fulfillment of the two-fold purpose of the organization, which is internal synergistic collaboration among the various institutes of the broader organization (Pauline Family) and external outreach to people interested in benefiting from our programs.

  • With whom is the organization sharing feedback?
