Mission and values
Our mission is to contribute to the emergence of a world where the healing, liberating and life-giving mercy of God is experienced.
We express our mission by safeguarding the ministries entrusted to our care, helping them to function effectively within the overall mission of the Catholic Church and in accordance with their founding charism.
We share with our ministries these core values: compassion, justice, respect, and hope.
Compassion. Those who show compassion, enter into another's experience and are moved to respond. They engage with the poor, vulnerable and disadvantaged people of our world.
Justice. Those who show justice, live and promote right relationships with God, self, neighbour and creation. They uphold human rights, accept their responsibilities to one another, and strive to provide fair access to the world's resources for all people.
Respect. Those who show respect, honour the integrity and diversity of creation. They recognise the unique dignity of every human being as created in the image and likeness of God. Empowered by the Spirit, they are called to be co-creators of the new creation.
Hope. Those who show hope, live the resurrection story by trusting in the transforming power of God. They persevere through difficulties, act with integrity, and serve with joy.
