People of Mission

Promises of our Archdiocesan Culture


  • Ever thankful and receptive to the gifts of the Lord, we honour each other as disciples, and, under grace, strategically approach all endeavours as a fruitful expression of mission.


  • We foster ecclesial communion, gracious in our unity in Christ and embracing the diversity of our backgrounds, experiences, ideas, and perspectives.


  • Receptive to the prompting of the Holy Spirit, we engage fully and collegially in making just, informed decisions that promote and reflect the mission of the Church.


  • Confident in the Lord and one another, we collaboratively build a transparent, open environment.


  • We serve the mission as faith-filled stewards with the joy and boldness that comes from the Holy Spirit

Our commitments to each other

  • We will engage in prayerful practices that ground us in our mission.
  • We will invest the time and energy to cultivate and sustain trusting relationships with each other.
  • We will work in the best interest of each other, intentionally helping one another succeed, without waiting to be asked.
  • We will embrace one another’s gifts and talents, roles, responsibilities and challenges as valuable to our collective ministry.
  • We will be attentive to one another, meeting and accepting each other where we are in our personal and professional journeys.
  • We will find joy and gratitude in our work and express it freely.
  • We will listen actively and show up fully for each conversation—body, mind, and spirit.
  • We will challenge each other’s ideas, assumptions, and perceptions with humility, respect, compassion, and patience.
  • We will be transparent and proactive in our communication, sharing information openly, responding to questions honestly, and always ensuring accessible feedback loops are in place.
  • We will enjoy humour wisely and often.
  • We will be receptive to receiving and integrating feedback about our ideas, perceptions, and decisions.
  • We will empower ourselves and each other to have the agency to make evidence-based decisions, take bold and measured risk, and be responsible for our decisions.
  • We will discuss and learn from failures, recognizing them as essential for creativity and innovation; we support each other to correct mistakes striving for excellence, rather than perfection.
  • We will be deliberate in our efforts to continually learn and grow personally and professionally.
  • We will set reasonable boundaries with colleagues and those we serve; colleagues are free and welcome to ask for what they need and are graceful in understanding their needs cannot always be fully met.
