The Disciples of Hope strive to imitate Christ through the example of John the beloved disciple who stood with Mary at the foot of the cross providing quality presence to the dying Jesus. With Mary they see the suffering of Jesus among the sick, dying, the elderly, drug dependents and those with mental health issues.

The Disciples of Hope respond to the gift of a call to serve by activating the gift of supernatural hope that is already present in the people of God.

Bible verse: Mark 12:28-31
