ST. IGNATIUS LOYOLA PARISH IN BUCHANAN VALLEY JUNE 2011
PARISH MISSION STATEMENT
The Mission of Saint Ignatius Loyola Church is to live the faith, spread the message of salvation and transform society by the saving power of Christ through the Sacraments, teaching and service. We do this because, as disciples and followers of Jesus, we share in His Mission and that of the Catholic Church.
By the year 2017, our bicentennial year, we will be a church of highly involved, knowledgeable, spiritual and supportive Catholics that reaches out in faithful service to our congregation, community and to others.
"Mission is stronger than money... we are people of mission.
Service is stronger than survival... we are people of service.
Sacrifice is stronger the striving ... we are the people of sacrifice.
Generosity is stronger then getting ... we are giving people.
The Cross of Cavalry is stronger that the empires of the world... we are people of the Cross.
The Crucified Christ is stronger then the power of the world... we are people of the Crucified Christ.
The generosity of God is stronger than the strings of humankind... we are the people of grace.
We are the people of compassion and generosity. Amen"
