Office of Evangelization and Discipleship

“As individuals, we yearn for an intimate relationship with Christ, the Word made flesh. As the Church, we celebrate our Catholic faith in communion, called together in this time and in this place to love one another as He loved us” (Bishop Stephen Parkes’ letter, Magnify and Rejoice, p. 2). The central focus of our work is an invitation into an ever-deepening encounter with our Lord and a desire for authentic relationships with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
