“Eudists courageously proclaim the message of salvation to those who have not yet heard it; they are concerned about those who, having heard it, have strayed from it; they attempt to make the communities for which they are responsible aware of their duty to evangelize. 

They attempt to open up these communities to the transforming action of the Holy Spirit by promoting, as much as they can, growth in the faith, deeper spiritual and sacramental life, and the sharing of pastoral responsibilities.” (CJM Constitutions 28)

Because the parish is one of the fundamental cells of the Church, it is the arena where much of the work of evangelization is carried out. In our parishes, we work on an ongoing basis to remind the faithful of their baptismal vocation to holiness, and strive to activate a spirit of evangelization and active compassion in the parish. The bishops have given us pastoral care of three parishes and one formation house:
