A Mission Plan is a document to guide us in moving forward together. It is not a strict set of directions nor does it answer all problems, but it will be an ever evolving plan for us as God moves through us and the communities we serve.

The Diocese is our churches, our schools, our agencies and our chaplaincies. But they are much more than bricks and mortar, they are communities where God’s spirit dwells, and they are communities of people that support each other to grow into that which God has made them to be. The Diocese is also comprised of the boarder communities in which we live and work. Our Mission Plan will guide the living out of mission across parishes, schools, agencies, and chaplaincies to support the mission we are all engaged in, and be a source of inspiration for the mission in which they long to be involved.
