The Comboni Lay Missionary (CLM) movement in the Democratic Republic of the Congo began on December 2, 1997 within the heart of St. Augustin’s Parish in the Archdiocese of Kinshasa. The CLMs follow the spirituality of the Cenacles of Missionary Prayer (CMP), an ecclesial movement inspired by the charism of St. Daniel Comboni. Each Cenacle is a small group of Christians who devote their missionary zeal to their local communities where they live.
The CLMs-Congo, celibate or married, are sustained by their own work, engaged in the world as disciples of Jesus. Participating in the charism of Daniel Comboni, they strive to create a community of brothers and sisters who cooperate as apostolic missionaries, devoting their time, energy and financial resources to the poorest and most abandoned.
