  •  God created us to know him, to love him and to serve so that we will be with him forever in his kingdom. (Pope Pius X)
  •  Pope Paul VI completed this Catechism: God created us to know him so that we can share our knowledge of him with others; to love him so that we can lead others to love him; to serve him so that we can let others serve him by serving one another; so that all of us will be with him forever in his kingdom.
  •  ďA new commandment I give you that you love one another as I have loved. By this all people will know that you are my disciples if you love one another.Ē

 

Parish Goal and Objective

A. Statement of the desired goal

  • Knowing one another in the Parish is one way of establishing Godís Community. Knowing is a prerequisite of loving. When we know and love each other, we can interact with one another. We can form leaders who are willing to actively participate in bringing the realization of the Vision and Mission Statements of this Parish.

 

  • In our Parish Church, we have active and non-active members. We have registered and non-registered ones. We have the supporting and the non-supporting members. We have people who believe that coming to Mass here is already a sign of their being a member of this parish. But we hope that all parishioners be active and supportive to our Parish Church and Community.

 

B. Statement of the desired objective

  • We recognize the different existing parish organizations. It is our hope that we are aware and have aligned ourselves with our vision, mission and goal; that leaders in all our parish organizations must be a model of an active member. We live within our parish boundary; or if outside, we are registered and supportive.

 

  • Knowing these various organizations in our Parish Community and the limitations of our Parish Facilities, we also know how to make adjustments in order to accommodate the needs of the Parish and the School as a whole. We can set objectives for our various organizations, but the Parish and the School must have always the priority.
