Lay Association for the “Children of the Church”
No one can claim as his own or her own the gifts infused generously and given in total freedom by the Holy Spirit that as the wind blows where it wants ... no one knows where it comes from and where it goes. (Jn 3: 8).
We are not simply people who have received the gift of the charism but we also have the duty to make it alive, present and relevant in the midst of the people of God who continue to safeguard and develop it! For this reason, the Lay Association of the “Children of the Church” was originated with the aim of living the charism, received as a gift by Mother Maria Oliva and sharing its mission in the world, in social, political and community commitment, in work, in the family.
The relevance of our charism encourages us to witness to the Church wherever Jesus actually calls people to live the Gospel of Salvation through the daily rediscovery of the Baptism that makes us children of God and of the Eucharist that nourishes us to be living members of His Body!
The members of this Association hold periodical meetings during which they try to deepen their understanding of the Word of God, and of the documents of the Church pertaining to their state of life.
