The Mustard Seed Missionaries Movement is an international community of individuals who seek the opportunity to grow closer to God through personal prayer and service to the most vulnerable in a community of others seeking common goals.

Motuus Missionarium Grani Sinapis

The Mustard Seed Missionaries Movement is a Private Association of Christ’s Faithful that has been established within the Roman Catholic Church (Archdiocese of Kingston, Jamaica). Designated formally within the Church by the Latin name Motuus Missionarium Grani Sinapis, the Movement includes people from across the globe, both consecrated and lay persons.  There is a place in the Movement for anyone of any age and ability who has been touched by our communities and has the desire to grow in love and gratitude to Jesus Christ with others.  We invite you to prayerfully discern joining us in this journey.

Membership in the Mustard Seed Missionary Movement is open to anyone who wishes to embrace the spirituality of Mustard Seed Communities more deeply in their daily lives and work to build community with others who are committed to the Mustard Seed mission.

The Apostolic Life of the Mustard Seed Missionaries Movement is based upon two central themes and four major commissions.

He is Here. Mustard Seed Communities’ spirituality is centered on the presence of Christ in the midst of our everyday lives. The presence of Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist is the primary focus of all Mustard Seed Communities Associates. Time spent in Eucharistic Adoration provides an opportunity for deepening our relationship with Christ which allows us to grow in love for God and our neighbors.

Thank You Lord. Everything that we have and all that we are is a gift from God; therefore, we give thanks to God for his blessings and, most of all, for his presence in our lives.

The Mustard Seed Missionaries Movement themes of “He is Here” and “Thank You Lord” are present at all Mustard Seed Communities Apostolates and we encourage Movement Associates to embrace these themes as well.

Commissions of the Mustard Seed Missionaries Movement

We Seek personal spiritual growth by creating space and time for God in our lives. We seek to create a rhythm of life where we intentionally set aside time each day for direct interaction with Our Lord. (Luke 6:12)

We Surrender to God’s will by listening to His voice through prayer. As we pray, we are challenged to respond to God’s call by following his plan for our life. (1 Samuel 3:10)

We Serve the most vulnerable, which allows our hearts to be filled with joy and the desire to encounter Jesus in everyone we meet. This joy allows us to reach out in humble service to others. (Matthew 12:11-12)

We Sow the seeds of community, knowing that we cannot journey alone; therefore, we encourage others to join us through prayer, service, and a desire to grow in holiness. (Acts 4:32)

Associates of the Mustard Seed Missionaries Movement are asked to become a part of our community through their offering of time, talent, treasure, and testimony in promotion of the Mustard Seed Communities mission of caring for the most vulnerable.  This is done in several ways:

  • Establish a daily routine of prayer and conversation with God.
  • Create a place and time for prayer each day.
  • Attend Holy Mass and receive the Sacraments on a regular basis.
  • Spend time in Adoration of the Holy Eucharist as often as possible.
  • Pray the Rosary.
  • Become involved in service to others, especially those who are most in need or most vulnerable.
  • Promote the Mission of Mustard Seed Communities.
