We will live out our purpose by:

Proclaiming: Knowing and sharing the Gospel of Jesus.

“This gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the world.” – Matthew 24:14

Inviting: Welcoming and accompanying others as Jesus did.

“Welcome one another, then, as Christ welcomed you, for the glory of God.” – Romans 15:7

Encountering: Growing in relationship to Jesus and one another.

“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.” – James 4:8

Do you have questions about the new mutually shared vision of the Diocese of St. Petersburg and the nine goals we are seeking to achieve over the next three years?
