Consecrated sisters in the Emmanuel Community
Priests in the Emmanuel Community
The Emmanuel Community is a Catholic lay international community that brings together faithful that share a common call and commit themselves to actively live their faith in their daily lives thus fulfilling their call as the first believers did who had “only one heart and one soul!” (Acts 4:32)

The Emmanuel community is for men women of all walks of life: from ordinary, professional and social life, of different classes, ages and nationalities. We are a community made up of different vocations: lay people (married couples, single men and women, youth), priests and lay men and women consecrated in celibacy. In sharing this common call of “one heart and soul”, the members, no matter their vocation, form a strong bond and unity that is lived and witnessed to others in the joy and compassion of living a life centered on Jesus Christ.

This unity is expressed in a particular fraternal life through weekly gatherings known as households as well as monthly meetings and national meetings. These allow brothers and sisters to come together to reinvigorate their call to serve the Lord, the Church and one another. The unity is also manifested in the various services of compassion and evangelization held both locally and nationally.

The Emmanuel community’s foundation is based upon three main pillars. They are Adoration, Compassion and Evangelization.
