Like our Founder, St Peter Julian Eymard, the religious of the Blessed Sacrament Congregation see the Eucharist ‘as a powerful force of renewal for Church and society’ (Rule #33).
Our mission is to do all that we can to enable the Eucharist to transform the world. This opens the way for a wide range of ministries. In the first place we aim to celebrate the Eucharist faithfully in the parishes entrusted to our care, in city-centre shrines or in places of prayer and retreat.
In Australia the mission of the Blessed Sacrament Congregation is focussed on two city-centre churches: St Francis’ in Melbourne and St Peter Julian’s in Sydney. The principal ministries we engage in are:
In addition we have religious who offer eucharistic catechesis in parishes or who teach in the field of liturgy in theological colleges.
