Fam­ily of Jesus
Puerto Maldonado, Peru

Who We Are

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 bishop, Msng. Fran­cisco Gon­za­lez Hernandez. 

The community has now been assigned the pastoral ministry in the district of "Las Piedras" by Bishop David Martinez de Aguirre  (O.P.).  Fr. Juan María Linares has been assigned as the Pastor of the zone.

Have a MARY Christmas

Father Philip´s words for us for this Christmas time.


Puerto Maldonado is a city in Southeastern Peru in the Amazon forest 55 kilometres (34 mi) west of the Bolivian border; located at the confluence of the Tambopata and Madre de Dios rivers, the latter which joins the Madeira River as a tributary of the Amazon. It is the capital of the Madre de Dios Region. Nearby are the Manú National Park, Tambopata National Reserve, and Bahuaja-Sonene National Park, which have been established to protect natural resources. These are some of the most pristine primary rain forests in the world.
