Sharing love and giving hope.
That's what we're called to do.
We have a common mission. We're a team.
The task of serving those we love
requires you and me.
And that from the beginning was God's dream.
We share God's love through what we do.
We're conduits of grace.
There is no cause for jealousy. We're one.
And giving hope is how we care.
It's what our world most needs.
We're pastors, chaplains, deacons, priests and nuns.
