We are a pilgrim people with a responsibility to bring the message of the Gospel to all. We have been blessed with a diverse group of Christians with a conglomerate of talents to accomplish any goal set out to achieve. We need to equip the people of God with the mind of Christ and the belief that they have the power of the Holy Spirit. We need to bring about change in a way that will be an expression of the kingdom of God - showing compassion, entwined with love and justice. The parish is not an end in itself. It should be a place where one can go to be renewed and supported in the struggles of life. We are to be an extension of Jesus’ mission, which is to transform all of life into good.
