Caring & Outreach

“Let justice surge like water, and goodness like an unfailing stream.”   – Amos 5:24

Justice is the virtue that guides our relations with all people.  Justice makes sure that we respect the dignity of all human beings and honor their rights.  Our faith reminds us that we are a human family.  The virtue of justice demands that we seek the common good for this family.  This means that we are called to share with others.

In the bond of mission that joins two individuals, both give; both receive.  Mission is evangelization, global outreach, changing the lives of others through Jesus’ teachings.  Children realize their roles as members of a Catholic, that is, Universal – community.

Caring and outreach opportunities are available to families throughout the year.
