To go out on Mission to everyone.
That we enable many more to hear the Gospel and to come to know, serve and love Jesus Christ in the saving communion of His Catholic Church, so that, persevering in faith, hope and charity, they may one day reach the happiness of Heaven.
“Go, make disciples of all nations”
Matthew 28: 19
To be totally dependent on the Holy Spirit
That shifting from maintenance to mission, we trust more completely in God through prayer, imploring the Holy Spirit to inspire our clergy and our laity with constant joy and creativity to develop and realise new, innovative ministries and ways of Christian living.
“You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you”
To convert Catholics
That we assist all Catholics, especially those who are not yet practising, to reach a deeper personal relationship with Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist, to be more intentional disciples and, discerning their charisms, to become more actively engaged in the Church’s mission.
“He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood, lives in me, and I live in him”
To become outward-looking servants
That all our parish and our school communities become ever more outward-facing service centres, brighter beacons of mission, dialogue and service to everyone around, especially to the poor, the homeless, those in need.
“In so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me”
