CLC CANADA MISSION STATEMENT 2015
Rooted in the Trinity, and formed in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola,Christian Life Community (CLC) Canada is called, as a body of lay apostolic leaders,to read the signs of the times and prayerfully discern prophetic action to set hearts on fire with Christ’s transformative love and compassion.Through the grace of God, in solidarity with World CLC priorities, CLC Canada collaborates withthe Society of Jesus, the universal church and all people of good will, to work for justice on behalf of the environment, the marginalized, the oppressed and for people living in poverty.
Our Community is made up of Christians: men and women, adults and youth, of all social conditions who want to follow Jesus Christ more closely and work with him for the building of the Kingdom, who have recognized Christian Life Community as their particular vocation within the Church. We aim to become committed Christians in bearing witness to those human and Gospel values within the Church and society, which affect the dignity of the person, the welfare of the family and the integrity of creation.
We are particularly aware of the pressing need to work for justice through a preferential option for the poor and a simple life style, which expresses our freedom and solidarity with them.
To prepare our members more effectively for apostolic witness and service, especially in our daily environment, we assemble people in community who feel a more urgent need to unite their human life in all its dimensions with the fullness of their Christian faith according to our charism.
We seek to achieve this unity of life in response to the call of Christ from within the world in which we live.
