Christus Vivit Community

The mission of the Christus Vivit Community is to be a community of hospitality and ministry to adolescents and young adults by witnessing inclusivity, reconciliation and service to our “dear neighbors” in Queens. Sponsored by the Sisters of St. Joseph, we seek to bring all people into right relationship with one another while identifying needs and offering solutions through service and expertise.

Christus Visit is a residential Christian community for young adults in their twenties (21-30) who are looking for an opportunity to support and further experience their commitment to Christian discipleship. Community Members either work full-time or are undergraduate or graduate students and participate in common prayer experiences was well as cook for common meals and participate in household responsibilities. The community is open to women and men. There is an application and interview process. Members of the community contribute to it's financial needs.
