Who is Glenmary?

I like to think that everyone knows who Glenmary is but recently people have been asking me; Who is Glenmary? What do you do? Two years ago Glenmarians gathered for our Chapter and drafted the following document describing who we are as a Community of Missioners:
The Glenmary Home Missioners of America is a covenanted community of Catholic Missioners - priests, brothers - together with students and co-missioners, who with enthusiasm, proclaim the Reign of God by bringing the presence of the Catholic Church to the Rural, mission areas of the United States of America.
As a community of Missioners we desire to learn, to model and to teach the love of Jesus by working in collaboration with other Christians.
Inspired by the Holy Spirit and nourished by the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Eucharist, we minister through Word, Sacrament, prayer and service.
Our mission is to witness, as well as expereince, love, justice, unity, reconciliation and hope with all people we serve.
Our commitment to God, to mission and to one another is the foundation, which calls, forms, unites and sends us.
