Learn why the head of the Holy Family is our patron.
Charles de Foucauld
The life of this French priest who lived in the Sahara is an
inspiration for our work. He is the source of our motto, "Cry
the Gospel with your life."
This prayer by Charles de Foucauld is a cornerstone of his
spirituality and ours.
Charles was guided by the hidden life of Jesus in Nazareth.
In silence and solitude, Charles came to know himself and God.
