Reflecting Christ
All Chris­tians are part of the Body of Christ

Our Ministry

All Chris­tians are part of the Body of Christ. We are His hands and feet. Peo­ple meet Him through us in a vari­ety of ways. Here you can see how He uses our com­mu­nity to express His love to others.

Reflect­ing Christ to the World:

As a contemplative-active com­mu­nity, we see our min­istry as valu­able in itself, not as a means to an end. A typ­i­cal estera house, a sym­bol of the injus­tice of poverty. Jobs in Peru are scarce espe­cially for sin­gle moth­ers. Here Ana awaits the com­ple­tion of her home. In treat­ing the human per­son with dig­nity, Christ heals us and those to whom we min­is­ter. In God’s econ­omy, noth­ing is wasted.

From estera to house, Fr. Philip at a house the God built using us as His instru­ments.
“It isn’t char­ity, it is Jus­tice. It’s due them.”

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.
