Our Sacred Purpose

 
Through the Holy Spirit, we magnify God's greatness by walking together on our journey of faith and by building bridges that strengthen discipleship on our mission to follow Jesus Christ.

Our Unifying Message

-- Building - Bridging - Being --

"Christians who are afraid to build bridges and prefer to build walls are Christians who are not sure of their faith, not sure of Jesus Christ.” Pope Francis
