 “A sense of deep communion with the rest of nature cannot be real if our hearts lack tenderness, compassion and concern for our fellow human beings.” (LS 91)

We are led from prayer to action and from action back to prayer in communion with God and one another. We thrive on partnerships within the communities we serve as a way of imitating Jesus’ community of love. We are awake to the needs of the world and address them through our ministries of teaching, healing, and dismantling racism.
