Our vision helps us answer two related questions: “who we are?” and “what we hope to achieve?” Here is our answer:
God has called us to live according to a fourfold vision: Meeting Jesus, Finding Joy, Sharing Beauty, and Serving Others.
These activities might seem different from each other, but we believe that each needs the other to be truly fulfilled.
We meet Jesus when we discover the joy that meeting him brings, the beauty he reveals, and the ways we are called to serve others as he does.
We find true joy when we meet Jesus, experience beauty, and find the perfect freedom there is in joyfully serving others.
We share in beauty when we see all the ways meeting Jesus, finding joy, and serving others bring out what is truly beautiful in ourselves and others.
We truly serve others when our service reveals joy, beauty, and Jesus. For Jesus is the model of all loving service, liberating joy, and transfiguring beauty.
