1.--The purpose of the Congregation of the Mission is to follow Christ evangelizing the poor. This purpose is achieved when, faithful to St. Vincent, the members individually and collectively:

1. make every effort to put on the spirit of Christ himself (CR I, 3) in order to acquire a holiness appropriate to their vocation (CR XII, 13);
2. work at evangelizing the poor, especially the more abandoned;
3. help the clergy and laity in their formation and lead them to a fuller participation in the evangelization of the poor.
