Where We Are
There are more than 160 of us all over the world at the moment. The majority of us live in Poland, in Warsaw, Lublin, Białystok, Wrocław, Poznań, Olsztyn, Gorzów Wielkopolski, Suwałki, Częstochowa, Radom, Łódź and in other cities.
We are also present in France, USA, Mexico, United Kingdom, Portugal, Belgium, Germany, the Philippines, Belarus, Ukraine and Latvia.
We live on our own or with our families. Some also live in communities of three persons which are called Little Nazareths.
Its universal presence and the evangelical nature of its witness are clear evidence if any were needed that the consecrated life is not something isolated and marginal, but a reality which affects the whole Church. The Bishops at the Synod frequently reaffirmed this: “de re nostra agitur
