Inspired by the examples of Sts. Francis and Clare of Assisi and their way of following Christ, we are committed not only to a life of worship together, but a life of mission.
Specifically, we are committed to focusing on:
- Reconciliation. This is the ministry of the Church — to call all persons into right relationship with God, themselves, their neighbor, and all of creation.
- Peace and justice. We are especially concerned with peacemaking and economic justice, caring for the poor among us and working to end every form of oppression.
- Integrity of creation. We stand within the Franciscan tradition of care for the Earth and for all of God's creatures, animate and inanimate, recognizing them as our brothers and sisters, who also bear the imprint of God's hand.
