We are a family of priests, brothers and sisters dedicated to Christ and His Church, bound by private vows of obedience, chastity, poverty and martyrdom, praying to be healed and formed into a family by the Divine Family (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) in order to live out in a prophetic manner our baptismal calling to follow Jesus Christ and to be his instruments of healing for families, including not only the individual domestic family, but also the broader family of the Church and of society.
We were founded by Father Philip Scott in 1998 under the auspices of Bishop Robert Lynch of the Diocese of St. Petersburg in Tampa, Florida.
We moved to Chaclacayo, Peru on January 10, 2003 in the Diocese of Chosica under Bishop Norberto Strottman. Finally, in 2008 we fealt called to go “farther in” to the jungle of Peru where we were invited to serve the Apostolic Vicariate of Puerto Maldonado by the present bishop, Msng. Francisco Gonzalez Hernandez.
