The Church has one mission, one purpose, and one plan entrusted to her by the Lord Jesus. The Church is to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to the whole world, to celebrate the Sacraments that make his saving mysteries available to all people until he comes again in glory, and to serve the needs of an ailing humanity in a spirit of mercy and compassion. That is her perennial mission.
In every age and in every place, the Church must link this mission to the particular circumstances of people living in a given period. That is why we have formulated a strategic pastoral plan, not to change what the Lord has given us but to remain faithful to what he has entrusted to us.
