“There is but one mission, the mission of Jesus… the Congregation seeks to make present again in concrete specific time and place this liberating mission of Christ, and in particular to show forth by its ministries, by the witness of its members and by the visibility of its corporate existence, the liberating mission of Christ” (Const.2-3).
Inspired by the theme of the 17th Congregational Chapter, we commit ourselves to:
Continue to discern and engage in ministries that support vulnerable people. We will do this in collaboration with others.
Be open to the transformative power of letting go of much that we know and love, while attending to the necessary tasks of completion.
Sustain and nourish our spirituality at this unprecedented time in religious life.
Take personal and corporate action to “care for our common home” (Laudato Si’, no.1), aware of the hospitality of the Earth, and of our role as co-creators with God who is being revealed in the here and now.
Act in solidarity with women throughout the world who are seeking to have their rightful place in church and society recognized.
