Our Mission is to make disciples
for the Lord Jesus Christ and,
together in ministry for Him,
advance the Kingdom of God.
We are a vibrant and welcoming Catholic community in Northwest Austin that is grounded in scripture, growing in the Spirit, and reaching out in love.
Proclamation: Providing effective, evangelical teaching and celebration which incorporates the best of our tradition with an emphasis on the Sacramental life, Scripture, and the experience of grace. We are to be a worshipping church, accepting Jesus’ lordship over all aspects of our life and building our life upon his Word, so that we might open our heart to the full presence and power of the living God.
Community: Providing the educational, supportive, and discipling ministries necessary to incorporate individuals into the Body of Christ. As the Universal Church we are open to everyone who seeks the love of God. We share in the redemptive fellowship of a kingdom community and the disciplines of faithfulness so that we each may grow into what Christ intends for us.
Service: Providing ministries of outreach to help build the kingdom and equip every member to be in ministry for Christ. We are to be a servant church, modeling our lives after the One who came to serve and sharing the grace we have been given, so that the living Lord might make a difference in our world through us, His disciples.
These three aspects of our strategy are not isolated from each other, but are interwoven and are all to be present to some extend in each aspect of the life of the church. Grounded in worship and the Word, growing in the Spirit, and reaching out in love is summarized in Proclamation, Community and Service.
