What must I do to be a Missionary Servants of the Poor of the Third World?

If you are young and you feel called to dedicate a year of your life to serve the poor with your heart open to discovering your vocation, contact us via our superiors in Peru or through our centre in your country, if there is one.

 

If I am around Cusco, would I be able to visit your Houses?

Yes. We offer anybody who wants to learn about our work, the possibility to spend some time with us. All you need to do is let us know before hand by contacting our House in Peru (0051 95 6949389 – 0051 98 4032491, msptm.cuzco@gmail.com).

How can I help from home?

You can help by forming a Support group that gives concrete help to the poor, through prayer, by spreading our material (like the Newsletter and the Movement’s books) and by organising missionary meetings in which one of our consecrated members could participate.

Is it possible to support specific projects?

Yes. But it is important to be aware that the projects must be sustainable and so you must be prepared to support the project for a determined length of time.

Is it possible to organise a missionary day, relying on the participation of a member from the Movement?

Yes. In order to do this, you must contact our superiors, leaving them enough time to prepare. We remind you though, that during these meetings, we never have monetary collections.

Who are the Married Missionary Couples?

They are family units who have left their countries and their jobs to serve the poor. The children of these families study in our schools.

 

How do the Married Missionary Couples live, and what do they do?

The Married Missionary Couples live in fraternity. The intimacy of the family unit is assured by the fact that every family lives in their own house. They do some things in community, like daily Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, and the praying of the Holy Rosary. The fraternity is directed by a superior.

They receive a stipend every month for their necessities. They currently run the schools and the Professional Workshops opened by the Movement (the wives run the female section, and the husbands, the male section). They are also responsible for the administration of the different Houses and they visit poor families on the outskirts of Cuzco, and several villages of the Cordillera. They also work in Lima, Guadalajara (Mexico), and Budapest (Hungary).
