Pastoral care of Parishes

Constitutions N. 154

1. In keeping with the character and tradition of our Order, let the brothers be ready to offer pastoral assistance to the diocesan clergy in parishes.

2. While being attentive to the urgent needs of the faithful, the ministers, with the consent of the council, may prudently accept the care of a parish in a spirit of service to the particular Church.

3. In order to stay faithful to our vocation when assuming this ministry, we should ordinarily prefer parishes where we can more easily give a witness of minority and live and work in fraternity. In this way the people of God can appropriately share in our charism.

 4. Shrines entrusted to our Order should be centres of evangelization and sound devotion. Our work in them should accord with the Church’s guidelines and give witness to the fundamental values of our life. Let adequate collaboration develop among the Circumscriptions for the service of the larger Sanctuaries entrusted to us.
