Collaborating

On 8th December, 2007, Bishop Peter Doyle laid out his vision for the Diocese. He concluded his presentation with the following words:

 

"More than anything I want every member of the Diocese to make their own and develop in their lives

 

CONFIDENCE in God, in themselves and in one another

 

CONVERSATION with God, with one another, and with the world

 

CONNECTION with God, with one another, and with the world

 

so that we can become what God asks of us, a community that is able more and more to act justly, love tenderly and walk humbly with our God".
