Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide sacramental services and education in a climate of openness and inclusiveness where all are welcome and empowered. Our community is one of equals, encountering and engaging the world in which we live through our words and works. We engage in just and charitable undertakings for the common good.

All are welcome

May today there be peace within.
May you trust in God
that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given you.
May you be content knowing that you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones,
and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.

— St. Therese of Lisieux

RomanCatholicWomenPriests Principles

We believe that women and men are created equal by God and can equally represent Christ in ministry.
We believe that women are called to a model of ministerial priesthood that is grounded in our common baptism.
We believe that there is no intrinsic connection between priesthood and mandatory celibacy.
We believe that we are called to operate on the principles of subsidiarity and democratic process.
We believe that we are continually called to support and encourage the next generation of women in their pursuit of priesthood.
We believe that we are called to practice a renewed theology, liturgy, and pastoral presence to better reflect the spirit and teachings of the Second Vatican Council.
We believe that we are called by the Holy Spirit to follow Jesus as our model of empowerment, inclusivity, and generous service.
