Mission & Faith
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.” Matthew 25: 35-40
Vision and Mission
Our mission is to embrace all those in need with hope, transforming their lives through faith, compassion, and service.
Our vision is that every person’s basic human needs are met through love and empowerment.
We honor a non-discrimination policy.
Why We Serve
The Gospel of Jesus Christ calls us to love our neighbors and serve those in need. Our mission is rooted in the seven principals of Catholic Social Teaching.
1. Life and Dignity of the Human Person
The Catholic Church proclaims that human life is sacred and that the dignity of the human person is the foundation of a moral vision for society.
2. Call to Family, Community, and Participation
We believe people have a right and a duty to participate in society, seeking together the common good and well-being of all, especially the poor and vulnerable.
3. Rights and Responsibilities
Every person has a fundamental right to life and a right to those things required for human decency.
4. Option for the Poor and Vulnerable
A basic moral test is how our most vulnerable members are faring. Our tradition instructs us to put the needs of the poor and vulnerable first.
5. The Dignity of Work and the Rights of Workers
The economy must serve people, not the other way around. Work is more than a way to make a living; it is a form of continuing participation in God’s creation.
We are our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers, wherever they may be. Loving our neighbor has global dimensions in a shrinking world.
7. Care for God's Creation
We are called to protect people and the planet, living our faith in relationship with all of God’s creation.
