Vicariate for Faith & Mission

Welcome

Each of us has been called as God’s children to grow in our faith, ensuring that we are life-long learners of what it means to be Christian. While our faith journey and formation is personal, it is also communal. We are called to be in communion with one another, participating in one another’s lives and supporting each other in our Mission.

Being a Catholic means you are part of a worldwide family of over 1 billion people.

We are made for one another and for Christ. In this section of the website, you will find resources, events, links, and information covering many aspects of living our Christian life together. Whether this is about going deeper in our understanding of Catholicism, learning to share our faith, or walking alongside others in their life’s journey.
