By centering our lives in prayer and worship, we seek to:
    • Build community among ourselves
    • Live by the Vows of Poverty, Chastity and Obedience
    • Prepare a place where hearts may be open to receive God's love
    • Use our gifts individually and corporately to minister to the needs of God's world
"He must increase, I must decrease"
