We believe in social justice towards all people.
We believe that we are called to be caring communities, building partnerships through education, development and aid.
We will practice our caring by fostering lasting improvements in the quality of life in developing countries, especially in Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
We do this in the footsteps of those who have shown their love for the poor, the oppressed and the disadvantaged.
We see the spirit of God in all that exists, in all that lives.
And most of all, in the love and friendship among people.
May we never waver in our pursuit of justice, giving ourselves in creative and thoughtful ways.
We will strive to overcome obstacles and turn them into opportunities.
We believe that we will achieve in our lifetime only a tiny fraction of what needs to be accomplished.
God, when we are weak, be our strength;
When in doubt, be our faith;
When we are discouraged, be our hope;
When in darkness, be our light.
