Mission Statement 

"We understand ourselves to be called: together as a body which welcomes and celebrates human diversity. To create a space where people of any faith or none, can join us in questioning and discovering the sacred in life through openness, struggle, laughter, and prayer. To a common commitment to be in solidarity with poor and marginalized people and to cherish Creation. We don't manage it all the time; when we don't, we try again".
