Therefore, we are called to promote by our attitude and action the ideal that all must have equal access to essential resources both for their good and the advancement of the common good.


We believe in the interdependence of the local and the global (“glocal”).

Therefore, our contributions and use of resources are chosen to build capacity for effecting both our neighborhood and our planet.


We believe in seeking the common good.

Therefore, we both relate to and serve the whole with a sense of responsibility for engaging in teamwork, collaboration and partnering.
