Because of our Baptism, the Holy Spirit calls us, the people of the Roman Catholic Church of Phoenix, to ­conversion as we come together to be nourished in the Eucharist, proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ, and serve the needs of all God’s people.

To be faithful to our baptismal call and our tradition, we accept the challenge to: build a prayerful community which welcomes and celebrates our cultural diversity; reach out actively and invite all, without prejudice, to experience the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ; and distribute justly our resources with the poor and share with each other the gifts God has given to us.
