Sharing the Heart of the Church's Mission

Communication and community lie at the heart of the Church's mission because God's self revelation draws every believer into the faith community.

Communication within the Church is about the sharing of faith, the preaching of the Word, the celebration of the sacraments, service to the poor and marginalized, and the union of the larger body.

Human communication in the Church mirrors the communication of the Trinity, the divine community, in whom we discover the fullness of communion and communication.
