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 to strive for holiness and commit themselves to actively live their faith in their daily lives through adoration, compassion and evangelization; 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 and women of all walks of life: from ordinary, professional and social backgrounds, 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 in every thing they do.

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 share how the Lord is working in their lives; how they are striving to evangelize in their every day and bringing their important petitions so that they may carry one another in prayer. It also gives them an opportunity to go deeper in faith formation through different teachings and talks. These meetings and the larger gatherings helps to reinvigorate their call to serve the Lord, the Church and one another, particularly through evangelization. Unity is also manifested in various other services such as compassion to the poor and sick as well as a variety of apostolic efforts rooted in the mission of the new evangelization.

The three main pillars of the Emmanuel community are Adoration, Compassion and Evangelization. Through the commitment to daily Eucharistic Adoration, community brothers and sisters are able to contemplate and strive to imitate the compassionate heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Hence the Lord’s compassion naturally leads them to desire to evangelize those around them and all those they meet in their every day lives: on the street, at work, in school and most of all, at home. Their mission? That all men come to know the person of Jesus Christ!
