Our Founding Virtues
"Set out into the deep" (Luke 5:4). The spirituality of our covenant community is nourished and expressed in three fundamental ways - full, active participation in the Liturgy, spiritual growth for life through small group participation, and engaging in ministries of spiritual growth.
Saint Peter reminds us that a Christian is a steward of the grace of God. "As generous stewards of God's manifold grace, put your gifts at the service of one another, each in the measure he has received" (1 Peter 4:10).
"Make hospitality your special care" (Romans 12:13). To know and care about each other, to share a deep sense of belonging, to welcome the stranger - these are the Christ-like qualities of an hospitable community. "The person who welcomes you, welcomes me" (Matthew 10:40).
“We, the Roman Catholic Parish of the Covenant Community of Jesus the Good Shepherd, have chosen to serve the Lord by evangelizing through the virtues of Hospitality, Spirituality and Stewardship.”
