2014 Annual Diocesan Appeal

We witness Christ’s love and
compassion in our daily lives.

Our mission as a community of
faith flows from  the risen Christ’s love

and is nourished through prayer,
good work and presence. 

His love enables us to bear witness
to Him as we follow His great commission

to Go and Make Disciples.

When we place our confidence in Christ who loves us beyond all comprehension, we become the faithful who proclaim and live the word of God by celebrating the sacraments and exercising the ministry of charity.
