Our commitment to outreach in firmly established in the 2020 Vision of the Angelus.
Towards 2020 with an enlarged vision of Outreach for the Angelus:
The Angelus statutes state that each member is called and according to their state of life and their means to commit themselves and their yes to the mystery of the Annunciation and the understanding of Mary’s “fiat” or “yes” to God. The Angelus Members can participate in the prayer mission and outreach of the Association in any of the following ways:
- Living a life of prayer that incorporates the Angelus Way of Prayer
- Establishing a network of intercessory prayer cells that pray in the Angelus way.
- Undertake the spiritual and theological formation of Members through the teachings of the Catholic Church.
Outreach of the Association ‘This text is being fulfilled today even as you listen’
- Participation in the apostolic mission of the Church within their own family, community, workplace or parish.
Each of the outreach activities finds its home in the scriptures from Isaiah 61:1-2 and Luke 4:18-22.
Each day the Angelus members, supporters or associates continues the commitment to fulfil the outreach to
Bring the good news to the poor.
Proclaiming liberty to captives,
Sight to the blind,
To let the oppressed go free,
To proclaim a year of favour
This text is being fulfilled today even as you listen.
- The Good News is maintaining the objectives and structure of the not-for-profit sector as a charity organisation by implementing sound governance, education opportunities and funding opportunities that respond to the needs of the Association and the wider community. Fundamental to our outreach is to work with Church, government and associated agencies to achieve short or long term housing assistance to those in need.
- Liberty includes working towards meeting some of the needs of people with complex problems that are often alienated by their community and find themselves displaced.
- New awareness or sight includes looking for the signs of abuse within our communities and implementing an ‘Alert System’ that facilitates early intervention.
- Freedom for people comes with ability identify and access the resources necessary to sustain assistance from the appropriate departments or services that can help them in their need.
We support existing or initiate new programs that will provide a comprehensive range of basic maintenance and support services for people who may be frail aged, have a disability, or come from different religious, cultural and linguist backgrounds. These programs are intended to empower people so they can live in communities that promote unity and harmony. Our aim is to provide a standard code of conduct for programs, ministries and services that promote justice, confidentiality and respect for all parties
