OUR VALUES

We value working collaboratively together “with humility, gentleness and patience, maintaining our unity in the Spirit in the bond of peace.” Together we seek: To worship by listening actively to the Word, praying for the needs of all, actively participating in the liturgy and receiving God’s grace in the Sacraments. To evangelize by the way we share our lives and treat each other, by the Gospel that we share and by the strength we find in our community of faith. To respect and cherish our diversity, discovering the way our many cultures reveal the greatness of Christ’s presence. To serve others as faithful servants, sharing our gifts with respect, compassionate care, justice and generosity with those among us who are vulnerable and underserved.
