Our Vision and Priorities


Our eyes fixed on Jesus,

we speak the truth and act in love

for the transforming of lives and the healing of the world.

We focus our vision especially in our mission priority areas:
            Healing across differences
            Honoring and caring for God’s creation
            Sharing the faith of Jesus


  • Healing across differences and including all, particularly in the face of the sin of racism that infects our souls as a nation and as a Church, and with regard to the full inclusion of LGBTQ+ persons in every aspect and on all levels of diocesan life. 
  • Sharing the faith of Jesus with youth and others in such ways that they will hear a message of hope in a difficult and challenging world, and so that we all will take part in God's work of transforming the world. 
  • Honoring and caring for God's creation, particularly in this era when changes in weather patterns threaten vulnerable human communities as well as vulnerable non-human species.
