The kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of justice, peace and the joy that is given by the Holy Spirit. Whoever serves Christ in this way pleases God and wins the esteem of people. Let us, then, make it our aim to work for peace and to strengthen one another. Romans 14:17-19 Thus, energized by the love of the Holy Spirit, we are a welcoming community of disciples, called by baptism: To provide for prayer, worship and spiritual formation To provide quality, life-long religious formation at all levels through educational programs To provide support and loving assistance in times of need To promote evangelization and Christian fellowship To address all areas of teen life: spiritual, social, communal service and educational dimensions. Through this way of life, and in the spirit of Christian stewardship, we proclaim the Gospel message as reflected in the theology of the Second Vatican Council, and thus as individuals and families work to build the Kingdom of peace, justice and holiness.
