We, the faith community of St. Catherine of Siena-St. Lucy Church, are a multi-cultural, inclusive community which assembles to worship in the Austin and Oak Park area. We seek to mirror Christ by accepting all into our family. We are unified through our belief in the sacredness of all creation, our Christian faith, and our Catholic perspective.
Our faith community exists to celebrate God's saving presence in Word and Sacrament, and to proclaim the Good News in lives rooted in discipleship and service. Through living the Gospel, we strengthen faith, hope, and love in one another, extending Christ's love to all.
We are called to gather often as an inclusive worship community through which the individual members of the faith community deepen their relationship with God. We will maintain a support system within the faith community, demonstrating a sincere concern for all. We will also collaborate with the broader community of the wider parish and our region in all of its religious and social diversity. We affirm our belief that the Spirit of our Creator is among all people, and that this Spirit strengthens us in the truth, in our hope for justice, and our love for one another.
