As a followers of Christ we are called to be the Church, not just "go to Church." The Church, formed by the Word, nourished by the sacraments - especially the Eucharist - and sent to the world, continues the Mission of Jesus to reconcile all of creation to the Father. We are to become what we receive in the Eucharist, the Body and Blood of the risen Christ, the sacrament of Christ in the world. We are sent to love as God loves with a preferential option for the poor. We are sent as evangelizers with Good News to share of our encounter with the living Christ and the gift of salvation. We gather for worship and live the sacramental life of the Church.
