OUR MODEL CHRIST
By the virtue of our call, SDMs share in the prophetic role of Christ. As prophets, we interprete the signs of the times through the prophetic role of preaching and teaching in accordance with the gospel values.
MISSIONARIES OF THE MOST ABANDONED
We are missionaries sent to give new life to the abandoned children just as the Father sent His Son to the whole world to give new life. Seeking welfare of the unfortunate children will be our primary goal. Our simple life style will always enable us to come close to the master who was close to the poor (c.677].
MISSIONARIES OF THE VOICELESS
We become voice of the voiceless where oppression, domination and unjust measures prevail. SDMs will be ready to face challenges in breaking down the fetters of the oppressive structures.
MISSIONARIES OF THE WORD
As missionaries, we undertake difficult missions and let know the Word of God where it as unknown. We translate and transmit the Word of God in and through our life.
MISSIONARIES TO PROMOTE INTER RELIGIOUS HARMONY
We are living in a religiously pluralistic world. In practical life, many of us live and work beside people of other traditions. Yet we remain complete strangers in their religious life. At this juncture, inter-religious dialogue becomes an imperative means which alone can bring mutual acceptance, respect and understanding. SDMs take up the challenges and work for the inter-religious harmony
MISSIONERIES TO THE UNREACHED LAND
The entire world is our mission. Cultures and countries will not be barriers to our missionary zeal. Through dialogue centers the SDMs will be in touch with different cultures and different religious faiths.
