PARISH DAY OF RECOLLECTION
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
We will be launching our parish Vision, Mission and Values Statement through a Day of Recollection on Mission Sunday, 23rd October.
Christian Mission is to carry on the work of Jesus Christ in our lives and spread the Good News of God's love and salvation through our words, thoughts and most importantly, our actions. As Disciples and Missionaries of Christ, we are commissioned to serve others in the name of Christ. We did not choose God, but God has chosen us to be his disciples and missionaries.
Our Vision, Mission and Values are the guides and light in our endeavours to discipleship and mission as a community. In my responsibility as your Parish Priest, I would like to invite you to be a part of this meaningful occasion where we come together as a community of faith and love, and share God's blessings as he sends us on our way to mission.
Fr. Eugene Vaz
