Peace to All!

In 2014…

May goodwill wash away anger and enmity.

May our hearts become large enough to embrace the deepest longings of the hearts of others – even our enemies.

May our ears be open to the cries of the poor and the sorrowful.
May our hearts be attentive to the longings and hopes of the powerless and downtrodden.

May we live peace, be peace, and “make some noise” for peace, that others will have peace in their lives.

MISSION STATEMENT

We, the members of the Office of Conciliation, are a community of faithful Catholics and others of goodwill and faith, charged by the Archbishop, in the name of the Catholic Church and in service to the Gospel, to assist believers in the settling of their conflicts so as to repair and restore table harmony. We of the Office of Conciliation carry out our mission governed by the Gospel mandates of justice, compassion, healing and the law of the Catholic Church.

VISION STATEMENT

Our vision of a better world, living in the Reign of God, prompts us to gather resources, to provide and supervise conciliators, to make the services of the office readily available and to assist others to change whatever would block our table harmony.

Bear with one another and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive us as the Lord forgave you. [Col. 3:12-14]

So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you. [Matthew 7:12]

If your brother or sister should commit some wrong against you, go and point out the fault, but keep it between the two of you. If she/he listens to you, you have won your brother or sister over. If she/he does not listen, summon another, so that every case may stand on the word of two or three witnesses. If he/she ignores them refer it to the Church. [Matthew 18:15-17]
