God brought our Community into existence in this 21st century, a time when the Church is looking to live out her missionary identity and put into practice the missionary mandate of Jesus. God entrusts us, as the Servants of the Gospel, with proclaiming our faith, which through the transformation of hearts will build a more just, humane and fraternal world.
Our mission is addressed to all the people of God, children, adults and families, but especially to young people, for whom we have made a preferential option. They are the present and the future of both the Church and society, and for that reason they are the main recipients of our mission of evangelization. We want to be able to form them so that they in turn can also be missionaries of other young people.
The Servants of the Gospel of Mercy were approved on September 27, 2002 as a private association of the faithful in Germany by the Bishop of Münster, Mons. Reinhardt Lettmann. We will always be very grateful to him and we are sure that he continues to accompany us from heaven. Our missionary family took shape within the Verbum Dei Missionary Fraternity.
