This is accomplished through spiritual ministry, health and recreational activities, advocacy, and outreach to the sick and homebound.

Through this journey of faith that varies according to individual needs of each person, the participants seek a closer relationship with Jesus Christ through prayer, Sacred Scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church, particularly a deeper understanding of the sacraments.
