PURPOSE

To form and encourage spiritually healthy Catholic disciples who live for Christ…every day.

VISION

We see Catholics developing a renewed sense of identity as Christ’s disciples and a passion for their vocation and apostolate. Faithful believers will find a new sense of purpose and enthusiasm in their worship and mission and a missionary zeal to further God’s kingdom. Disciples will engage others spiritually in their families, parishes, and everyday encounters and discover previously unimagined opportunities to serve and share the Gospel. Catholics will intently seek the Lord and, through ongoing conversion, continue to grow more like Jesus.

Our approach is …

to help Catholics become everyday disciples,

who improve their spiritual health,

and then help others become growing disciples.

We have three goals:

To help Catholic disciples understand their calling as Christ’s disciples

hh

To equip Catholics as missionary disciples

To encourage and inspire disciples to follow Christ

D

Dynamic 

We believe Catholic discipleship is not static, and that disciples should continue to grow in their relationship with Christ and become more like Jesus … every day.

I

Integrity

We are faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church and commit ourselves to practice what we profess.

S

Spiritual Health

We seek to promote spiritual health. We believe that spiritual wellness is not only defined negatively as “the absence of disease or sin,” but also in a positive way, that includes charity, humility, virtue, and the fruits of the Spirit.

C

Conversion

We believe ongoing conversion is essential to spiritual health and growth.

I

Implementation

We desire not only to increase knowledge but to promote practice and application.

P

Passion

We are passionate about our faith and our relationship with Jesus Christ.

L

Lay Apostolate

We seek to promote the lay apostolate as expressed in the vision and documents of the Second Vatican Council.

E

Equip & Encourage

We seek to equip and encourage Catholic disciples to live as disciples and to fulfill their vocation.
