Who We Are
Founded in 1958, SOLT is a Catholic international missionary community serving in 8 countries throughout the world. We are teams of priests, consecrated brothers and sisters, and laity who serve the Church. We imitate Mary’s virtues and seek to enter into her intimacy with the Most Holy Trinity. We go where we are needed and serve in many capacities, including education, evangelization, pastoral, retreats, health care and drug rehabilitation.

“In each Sunday Liturgy, especially in the Gospel, God gives you a mission, a work, for the coming week. He sends you forth to make it fruitful. The next Sunday you bring back to him and offer on the altar your work for the past week, and again he gives you a new mission for the coming week. In this way we live from Eucharist to Eucharist, from Communion to Communion.” - Fr. James Flanagan, SOLT Founder

Step 1: Read the readings for the Mass
Step 2: Reflect on the readings - What is God saying to us? How can we apply it in our lives? What are we going to do to make if fruitful for this week (the video can assist your personal reflection)?
Step 3: Share your reflection.
