"Go and make disciples of all nations"
From the moment that Jesus gave the Great Commission, his followers had a clear calling. No matter what was happening in their lives, they had a calling, a calling to be "missionary disciples". Going into all the world and proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus, showing people what it means to be His disciple and inviting people they meet into relationship with Jesus Christ. And this calling wasn't just for his disciples in that moment, but to every generation of disciples that followed. This is a calling for you and me.
PECS began with the vision of a priest in the United States; this vision was caught by Don Pigi Perini and the journey began as more and more countries and parishes joined the worldwide community of PECS.
