Today the Emmanuel Community is known throughout the world for its Schools of Mission for young people, including one that will soon open in New York City. International missions work has also been a primary activity as an outgrowth of the Community’s focus on compassion and evangelization, along with their Zacchaeus Course, which aims to infuse Catholic Social Teaching in everyday life. Laurent Landete, who joined the Community at age twenty, has now spent almost three decades working to further this mission.
