                                                                                     We are all on a spiritual journey... to become more fully alive,
                                                                                                                                                  the person we are meant to be,
                                                                                                                                                  fulfilling our meaning and purpose.
This pilgrimage can also be seen as discovering and living fully our personal vocations – God’s personal and unrepeatable dream for our lives. Spirituality is about how we undertake this journey.

Becoming Our Truest Selves

     The Đồng Hành-CLC way of life offers such a pathway to become our true selves, in community, grounded
     in Ignatian spirituality. At the heart of this approach is the conviction that loved into each of us is a fire, a
     great gift. Our journey in life is about learning to open this gift, layer by layer, allowing it to unfold. It involves      embracing and drawing out this inner fire.

     Đồng Hành-CLC focuses on the formation of persons. People so captivated and inflamed by Christ’s love      that they strive to foster discerning hearts and empower growth. We seek ways that better help one another      focus our inner fires: to uncover our special talents, to embrace our shadows, to give of ourselves deeply.      We collaborate in Christ’s mission of bringing about God's Kingdom by building communities discerning for      mission that meet the real needs of people, especially the poor and marginalized.

The Spiritual Exercises is the characteristic instrument forming us into close followers of Christ. We are caught up in a personal love of Him who gathers us as community and sends us on mission, as partners, bringing of all creation into the communion of God.

Thus, we collaborate with the Spirit in forming individual persons on the way of falling and staying in love with God.
