Guided by the Holy Spirit, with priests and brothers participating in the same charism, we consider fraternal life and mission to be the two fundamental elements of the MSA’s. Without fraternal life, we are unable to complete our mission for the Church.
Our fraternal life is at one and the same time communal and apostolic. Both must be maintained in constant balance. Community life is an incentive for our apostolic life and the latter also energizes our fraternal life.
In Vietnam, most members live in three local communities. Our current communities are located in Nghi Phu – Vinh, Tan Loc – Cua Lo and Cua Lo. We also have some member studying in abroad, in there they are living with local community.
Fraternal community life requires a family atmosphere where each member feels accepted and appreciated. This demands a willingness for service, openness, and mutual support. It is never permanent and under daily construction. For this reason the Eucharist, the Word of God, and common prayer are central elements in each community.
