People of good will striving to create a better global society
We focus outside Australia on Clean Water, Disadvantaged Youth, and HIV-AIDS/Health education development programs, within Australia on most in need necessitous circumstances, as well as supporting formation and training of MSC members in needy countries.
The MSC Mission Office began in June 1998. We have a youthful spirit open to the cry of the poor. Although our spirit and motivation is Catholic, we have a history of co-operating with all people of good will. Our spirit is one of hospitality, good cheer and mutual support.
Australians have a proven record of distinguished service in developing countries. Each year hundreds of people go to many countries, often for years, and do remarkable work.
The MSC Mission Office acts:
- by analysing the causes of injustice and poverty;
- by seeking remedies;
- through raising awareness and support (personnel, goods, funds) for those with whom we work, or those who seek our assistance.
In this way we strive to share with others a common vision and mission for justice, peace and integrity of all creation.
One of the works of the MSC Mission Office is to provide clean water to people all over the world. In so doing we are motivated by the words of Jesus when He said that if we give as much as a cup of water in His name it will not go without its reward.
Also we recall the cry of Christ on the Cross: "I thirst". These were the words of a thirsty person, and came from deep within His Sacred Heart. His thirst was not simply for water but especially the eternal thirst of our Creator God who told St Margaret Mary Alacoque: "Look at My Heart, which loves so much and is loved so little in return".
