Guns N' Rosaries Mission

Through fellowship, education and charitable acts we seek to reclaim our Christian baptismal inheritance as Priests, Prophets and Kings. Priests are known throughout Scripture for giving sacrifice, so we seek to sacrifice our lives for Christ through donating ourselves to others, particularly our families. Being a Prophet means to speak on God's behalf. Through educating ourselves in Holy Scripture and Catholic Tradition we aim to articulate Truth through the way that we live and speak about the faith to others. Kings have three primary tasks; (1) Lead his people into battle, (2) Look after widows and orphans, (3) Care for the poor. We participate in this kingship by picking up the daily fight against personal sin and in particular by caring for the poor through personal relationships and material help for those in need. In order to achieve this mission we invoke the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary and St Joseph.


Following the charism of St Vincent De Paul, Guns N' Rosaries seeks out those in need by organizing caring men and their families to provide for a particular needy or suffering family through personal attention and material support.

"The great tragedy in the church is not that rich Christians do not care about the poor but that rich Christians do not know the poor.  When the worlds of poverty and wealth collide, the resulting powerful fusion can change the world." - Shane Claiborne

"We should care for the poor in a way that honors them, so that they can reciprocate our gifts.  Help is humiliating when it appeals to men from below, taking heed only of their material wants.  It humiliates when there is no reciprocity.  When you give a poor man nothing but bread or clothes, there is no likelihood of his ever giving you anything in return.  But help honors when it appeals to him from above.  Help honors when, to the bread that nourishes, it adds the visit that consoles, advice that enlightens, the friendly handshake that lifts up flagging courage.  Everyone who gives a kind word, good advice, a consolation today, may tomorrow need a kind word, advice, or consolation.  The hand that you clasp clasps yours in return." - Blessed Frederic Ozanam
