About ICPE Mission
The Institute for World Evangelisation - ICPE Mission, is an International Association of Christ's faithful of Pontifical Right and is the missionary arm of the Glory of God International Covenant Community, which started out in Malta (see also our history for more detail on this) as a local community. In the following years, many other covenant communities around the world flourished as part of the Glory of God International Covenant Community.
There are within the Glory of God International Covenant Community (GOGICC) , two main expressions to date: the local communities and the missionary communities.
In the local communities, members and their families live in their own homes, have secular employment and come together regularly for prayer, fellowship and ministry. In doing so, they effect their local surroundings with the Gospel of Christ.
The local communities are found in
- Poland (Lublin)
- Indonesia (Jakarta)
- Italy (Sicily)
- India (Banglore and Kolkata)
- Australia (Sydney)
The ICPE Mission constitutes the missionary arm of the Glory of God International Covenant Community.

ICPE Missionary Communities
The ICPE missionary communities vary in size from 3 to 20 members. These households and communities are made up of ICPE missionaries who are fully engaged with their lives and resources in mission, in particular in their availability to serve the mission ad gentes.
Communities of Companions of the ICPE Mission
Attached to the ICPE Mission are the Companions - covenanted members whose personal vocation places them at the heart of society, living the ICPE charism and spirituality at the workplace, in the family and in the Church, wherever these members live. Through their talents and resources they help further the aims of the ICPE Mission.
Friends of the ICPE Mission
The Friends of the ICPE Mission are "members at heart" and as such informally linked to the ICPE Mission. Even though they are not committed to the ICPE Mission, the Friends participate in the grace of the Mission and endeavour to live according to the spirit which characterises it. They are united in prayer, fraternal love and common service to the Church with the ICPE community members and other Friends of the Mission.
