The Challenge

Be one of us in the missions

You are called to be a missionary

Missionary Formation

In his second visit to the Philippines in 1995, on the occasion of the World Youth Day, he specifically challenged the Youth to give their best to bring Christ to Asia where many yearn to listen and to know Him.

The pope enjoined the Philippines in 1981 to support and pray for missionary vocations for the Filipino-Chinese Apostolate

“And here on our own land is a vast field of mission related to the Filipino-Chinese Apostolate. Less than 20% of the Chinese in the Philippines have had some effective evangelization. The progress made in evangelizing through the educational and pastoral work of the Filipino-Chinese Apostolate is a great encouragement. We need to intensify this. But we must look beyond our shores and take note of the missionary opportunities opened by the contacts that our Filipino-Chinese brothers and sister have with East Asian Chinese communities, including the People’s Republic of China whose openness to religion remains fluid. We need to provide encouragement, support, and personnel to this important mission.” (Second Plenary Council of the Philippines, no. 109)

On January 20-February 20, 1990, the Second Plenary Council of the Philippines was convened and elicited the challenge toward the Filipino-Chinese Apostolate

 The Church in the Philippines is in the state of mission
