Responding to Challenges: 

Congregational Directions

  • Unity in Diversity

Our sensitivity to the cry for human dignity that comes from the global cultural realities impels us to strengthen our multi-cultural communion within and outside of SMIC Community.


  • Prayer

In creative fidelity to our SMIC charism we commit ourselves to develop our integrated Franciscan spirituality keeping us open to continuous conversion.

  • Ministry

We are determined to respond to a clear call to mission beyond borders. This motivates us to courageously expand our mission networking.

  • Ecological Conversion

In Franciscan reverence, we respond to the pain of Mother Earth by committing ourselves to intensify our ecological solidarity.
