We are an association of nonprofit lay faithful, who belongs to the Apostolic Roman Catholic Church
¿What Do We Do?
In addition to dedicating our lives to serving, the apostolic community SERVANTS OF THE SERVANT hears the call of God to build and be the church.
We fund and maintain homes - kitchens, halfway houses, shops, service points or special sites, where the begging brother, feeling the love of Christ through his servers, finds physical and especially spiritual assistance, so he can:
- Decently clean their bodies and clothes.
- Find a hot drink with a slice of bread.
- Acknowledge the providence and merciful love of God, living the service of the serving brother and listening to the word of God.
- Recognize and regain their dignity as children of God.
- Initiate rehabilitation processes to achieve normality of family life and community.
- Teach to those who the good God calls to the community the way of holiness through service.
The charisma that sustains and gives life to the community is called service.
Service to Christ living in the needy brother. It is the service after the example of the Good Samaritan, serving the poor, abandoned on the streets, children, women, men and elderly in need, but also helping to discover in man the notion of service as a path to salvation.
¿How Do We Want to Act?
