In a turbulent age...
During the 1960s and 1970s—a time marked by sudden and powerful social
upheaval—a worldwide movement of Christian communities began working to
strengthen faith and family life. In our current age of surf-the-net
“virtual” relationships the need for stable communities of faith is

Across the world...
The Sword of the Spirit is an ecumenical association comprising more
than 65 communities in 24 countries—more than 10,000 people using their
time, money, and resources to help their fellow human beings. Members
belong to Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox traditions.

quality of life that speaks to the world around them. They join in the
task of bringing gospel values to their homes and workplaces.
