by the poverty and dehumanized condition of our people
encouraged by their faith and desire for justice
the Redemptorists of the Province of Cebu,
an apostolic community dedicated through our vows,
called to respond to the urgent needs of our people,
the most abandoned and the poor,
partnership with our lay cooperators
in communion with the local Church.
acknowledging the weaknesses at times of our apostolic response
individuals and as community,
draw strength from our Redemptorist tradition of missionary dynamism
of working in and through community.
by the Spirit and challenged by the poor whom we are sent to evangelize,
now commit ourselves anew
bear prophetic witness to the merciful love of the Father
to proclaim the plentiful redemption of Christ the Redeemer
our lives and our preaching.
this end, we further commit ourselves
a deeper personal and communal conversion to Christ and his mission;
a renewed effort to improve the quality of our community life on the human
a renewed integral and inculturated evangelization in the spirit of PCP
II and our recent General Chapters,
the new way of being Church through Basic EcclesialCommunities.
the guidance of the Spirit
the unfailing assistance of Mary, our Mother of Perpetual Help,
shall then be a province that work together
help bring about among our people
growth of God's Kingdom proclaimed by the Redeemer,
Kingdom of Justice, Peace, Love and the fullness of life for all.
