Characteristic Dimensions

There are four Characteristic Dimensions which inform all of the activities of the Australian Province of the Divine Word Missionaries.

They are Mission Animation, Biblical Apostolate, Communication and Justice Peace and the Integrity of Creation (JPIC)

As followers of Jesus Christ, we believe that every baptised person is personally called to be a missionary for Christ.

Not everyone will take up the call to become missionary priests or brothers like the Divine Word Missionaries, but every person can be missionary in their own place and circumstance by deepening their relationship with God and spreading his love to others.

As Christians, we believe that the Bible reveals to us the living Word of God.

The Biblical Apostolate of the Divine Word Missionaries in Australia is a ministry of spreading the Word of God to everyone.

Communication at its most profound level is the giving of self in love. Consequently, good communications has always been at the heart of the Society of the Divine Word.

The founder of the Society of the Divine Word, St Arnold Janssen began his life’s work of awakening the missionary responsibility of the Church by publishing a popular newsletter, called The Little Messenger of the Sacred Heart.

As the name implies, this is an apostolate that cares for the poor and the marginalized, as well as for the earth and all of creation.

In the Australian Province, this takes the form of caring for Asylum seekers and refugees, fighting against pollution, climate change and irresponsible exploitation of the land as well as seeking a more just distribution of economic prosperity, food, water, healthcare, education and resources.
