What
We Do

We endeavour to promote a faith that engages everyone in the issues of daily living, a faith that does justice, a faith as transforming acceptance of the Gospel breaking into human existence through the poor and the oppressed, touching the wounds of marginalized people, with whom Christ is seen to identify himself.

2019
Lenten
Campaign

CARING FOR OUR COMMON HOME: ENCOUNTER CHRIST AND SERVE AS STEWARDS

We mindfully begin again our Lenten journey of spiritual renewal and conversion by going through the purposeful actions of praying, fasting (abstinence), and almsgiving (works of charity). These three practical ways express our true interior repentance conversion.
