The Missionaries of Jesus (MJ) is an international and multicultural Roman Catholic religious missionary community. It was founded in the Philippines on 12 June 2002 by a group of forty-one men called and inspired by the mission and humanity of Jesus.
With deep respect we approach peoples of other cultures, traditions, and faiths. We work for and are in solidarity with the marginalized sectors of society— the indigenous communities, the urban poor, migrant workers, refugees, and displaced populations. We are partners in their aspiration for a new humanity rooted in Jesus Christ.
The Missionaries of Jesus are called and sent to discover and uncover the face of Jesus Christ hidden in every human scarred by poverty, ignorance, indifference, injustice and selfishness.
We are present in the Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Guatemala and in the USA.
