Mission Statement: Bring the Sacred Love of Jesus Christ into the Secular world.
“Consequently, no one can demand that religion should be relegated to the inner sanctum of personal life, without influence on societal and national life, without concern for the soundness of civil institutions, without a right to offer an opinion on events affecting society. Who would claim to lock up in a church and silence the message of Saint Francis of Assisi or Blessed Teresa of Calcutta? They themselves would have found this unacceptable. An authentic faith – which is never comfortable or completely personal – always involves a deep desire to change the world, to transmit values, to leave this earth somehow better than we found it.” (Evangelii Gaudium 183)
“Like Jesus we belong to the world living not for ourselves but for others. The joy of the Lord is our strength.” St. Teresa of Calcutta
Our purpose therefore is:
- To help college students find ways to live a unified life with God and through God.
- To reach out to college students from different campuses all over the East coast and give them the opportunity to work together, and unite in prayer, service, and love.
- To help bring up Church attendance and participation substantially, by igniting a newly found thirst and hunger for the Eucharist as the highest form of Worship and also for the Catholic Church’s teachings.
- To provide opportunities for Prayer, Service, Fellowship, Discipleship, and Worship in order to help students develop in accordance to the teachings Jesus Christ as handed down to His Church.
- To help prepare students to graduate college as Men and Women for Christ, so they might go out into the world to inspire and influence the way the Holy Spirit guides them to.
- To give students an opportunity to use their God-given talents and abilities to not only help the ministry, but to also serve God and bring Honor and Glory to His name.
- To make use of the modern advances of today’s age to evangelize, spread the Word of God, and connect with students. Break will take social media, the Internet, Television, and other forms of pop culture and use it in a way that will help bring the light of Christ to college students everywhere.
- To form friendships and relationships with our brothers and sisters from all over different campuses, so that we may establish many homes for our ministry and so that we can use our tools of contemporary Praise and Worship to help build our Catholic identity as “One body, one Spirit, one Lord, and one Faith.” (Ephesians 4:4-6)
- And to break the divide.
- The phrase “Break the Divide” comes from a theme that was used for a Youth Conference that hosted hundreds of young people from all over North America back in the summer of 2014. The “Divide” signifies the common separation between the Sacred world and the Secular world in one’s own life. The “Break” represents the elimination of this division and signifies that Christ should be the center of everything. Jesus is our peace, and only He can break these walls. He desires Oneness. (Ephesians 2:14)
