altThe most important '€œreason for being'€ of the Society is that it has in common with the mission of Jesus Christ and of the Church, that is, '€œto revive faith and re-enkindle charity of the entire People of God and to spread the faith and charity in the world, so that soon there may be but one flock and one shepherd'€ (John 10,16).

This general aim, common with the whole Church, gets its specific imprint by Pallotti'€™s idea of the '€œcatholic'€, universal apostolate, which for St. Vincent Pallotti became a guiding idea of his activities and his theological writings. Such a concept presupposes that every one is called to follow Jesus Christ and to shoulder his/her responsibility for the mission of the Church, to instil in all a profound conviction of their personal call to be a disciple of Jesus Christ and to inspire them for a life with and for Christ. Generally we can say that the aim of the Society is to increase the collaboration among the members of the Church, that is, among the diocesan priests, the male and female religious and the laity to fulfil fully and more efficiently the apostolic tasks.

Vision Statement

We are:

* a welcoming community which reaches out to all
* celebrating Christ's presence
* joyfully living out our Christian calling across distance and diversity

This vision states that as a Diocese, we aim to be a welcoming, missionary, centred on Christ, and each striving to live one's particular vocation. It is in living out our calling that we praise God, follow Christ, influence society and achieve the goal of eternal life won for us by Christ. In the parishes we have encouraged people to measure whatever they do against this Diocesan vision.
