As we try to live out the Christian meaning of salvation in our everyday lives, we commit ourselves to seek justice, in other words, to establish and live in right relationships. It is the call of Jesus himself to live in right relationships that drives us towards the dual purposes of Charity and Justice. Justice speaks of changing structures and systems of addiction, sin, and materialism that drive humanity away from a full relationship with each other and with God. Charity involves direct support of the marginalized or “poor” in the world, through spiritual and economic means.
The Diocesan Mission Council aims to help the people of the Diocese to experience our call to mission as a community of people living and sharing our faith through presence and relationship. It is a call that surpasses age, race, and gender to evangelize, to become aware and to love. It is also an appeal to commit your time and energy to others, and a call to be challenged.
The call to mission is a call to be involved, whether it is local, national or international. To check the updated Lay Associations Directory or to register your Lay Associations:
