Social Ministry is the continuation of the Ministry of Jesus, his reaching out to the poor, the sick and the marginalized through miracles. Assuring presence and challenging actions were the sign as well as the reality of the imminent kingdom of God as revealed in the Gospels. “We have the God given responsibility both individually and collectively of reaching out to the people of God, seeing the face of Christ in them, especially in the destitute and the downtrodden and serving them with tenderness, to lead them to experience God and fullness of life through creative means “ SDC. Social ministry is the sharing of Christ experience. When the disciples experienced the risen lord they felt it was their duty to share with others an experience that totally altered their lives. “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me , I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me , I was in prison and you visited me “( MT 25: 35-36).
Urged by the compassionate love of Christ and conformed to Jesus Christ, giving life to all, especially to the destitute, there by establishing the kingdom of God on earth.Our mission is to experience God in the service of human beings and to empower them to live with the dignity of the children of God. The nearer are we to the poor, the closer we are to God and the more vibrant our communities would become. Social involvement and action are personal obligations of every individual member and it cannot be delegated to the department of social apostate in order to be relived from personal obligation. Evangelization is a message of compassionate love of Jesus shall go deep in to the hearts and influence the lives of all, especially the poor.
