Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei

Opus Dei, meaning "work of God", is a personal Prelature of the Catholic Church (see more info). The mission of Opus Dei is to promote among Christians of all social classes a life in the midst of the world fully consistent with their faith and to contribute to the evangelization of every sphere of society.

In order to achieve this aim, the Prelature provides for the spiritual and pastoral care of its faithful, and offers this help to many other persons, "each one in his or her own state in life, profession, and situation in the world" (Statutes of Opus Dei, art. 2.1.).
