As individuals, families and parishes, our mission as the Diocese of Worcester is to respond joyfully to Christ’s call to become more fully the People of God.
Though imperfect, we are a blessed people striving to participate in Christ’s mission of reaching out to all. Therefore, we accept the Gospel challenge, which calls us to bring another to a deeper knowledge and love of God.
Since God calls us to live in community in the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves in this time and place to becoming a prayerful and faith-filled Church that truly reflects the glory of God.
