Pfanner Lay Mission Companions
“No talent too humble or too high
For the service of God”
Abbot Francis Pfanner
“It is not possible to take on the role of volunteers only on the wings of enthusiasm. This service calls for the spirit of poverty, the ability to work without ostentation, discreet and cordial friendship, sacrifice, listening, sensitivity, flexibility to cultural and spiritual values, discernment and the witness of a truly Christian life”.
John Paul II
