Missionary Program

Inspired by the Gospel mandate to give up everything and follow Christ (Matthew 19:21), the St. Michael's Missionaries are called to live a life of prayer, community, and works of mercy. Following in the footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi to "Rebuild the Church," the missionaries are dedicated to restoring the dignity of the human person through a dynamic relationship of love and mercy with one another and the poor. They work alongside the Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal in their different apostolates in Atlantic City and share in various aspects of their community and prayer life. The missionaries live at the Fr. Benedict House, where most of the service to the poor takes place. The Fr. Benedict House is named after
Fr. Benedict Groeschel, CFR, one of the eight founders of the CFR Friars.
