"The Movement of the Missionary Servants of the Poor will expand and take deep roots if it remains in God and seeks the eternal salvation of the poor."
In September, we welcomed four new young people to the City of Boys. All four young men are willing to stay for a whole year of experience with us. This is what we call the ‘Year of Saint Augustine’, where they remain in the service of the poorest and in listening to God’s will for their lives.Read more
