Because we care
Through 2020Vision we recommit ourselves to inspired, able leadership; healthy, sustainable parishes and community ministries; effective communications; and transparent governance and management.
We reaffirm our value for diversity and we continue to develop ministry that speaks to the realities of Quebec society and its peoples: its cultures, languages, ages, and ethnicities.
Motivated by ministry rather than maintenance, we embrace the courage we need in order to take risks and make difficult decisions for the sake of God’s mission.
Jesus answered them, ‘ Very truly, I tell you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. Those who love their life lose it, and those who hate their life in this world will keep it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am, there will my servant be also. Whoever serves me, the Father will honour’.
Rooting our 2020Vision in Mission
In partnership with other Anglicans around the world, our vision is guided by the Marks of Mission. Rooted in our Anglican identity and heritage, these are core activities of the church yesterday, today and tomorrow.
- To proclaim the Good News of the kingdom
- To teach, baptize, and nurture new believers
- To respond to human need by loving service
- To seek to transform the unjust structures of society
- To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth
