The Priestly Congregation of the “Miles Christi” was founded in 1994 in Argentina. The name means “Soldiers of Christ,” and their desire is to seek something different from what the world has to offer.

What am I doing for Christ? What must I do for Christ?”
We are proposing to help the Sisters in their work with a contribution of $3,900 and also to help for their basic living costs with an additional $5,000. Will you help support the pastoral apostolate of these Missionary Sisters in Cuba as the travel to “where the tarred roads end”?
