Our Vision

Allview is committed to providing Christian ethical and cultural enrichment for families and individuals.

By its very nature the gift of the person must be lasting and irrevocable. The indissolubility of marriage flows in the first place from the very essence of that gift: the gift of one person to another person. This reciprocal giving of self reveals the spousal nature of love. 

- Pope John Paul II,  Letter to Families, 1994



Just as Christ “went about doing good” throughout Palestine, so must you also spread peace in your family circle, in civil society, on the job, and in your cultural and leisure activities.”

- St. Josemaria Escriva
