Mission Statement of the Archdiocesan Pastoral Plan

Wester coat of armsOn Pentecost, 2006 the Archdiocesan Pastoral Plan was promulgated by Archbishop Emeritus Michael J. Sheehan. It’s mission statement reads: Commissioned by Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit the Roman Catholic Church of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe is the People of God of many cultures and traditions. In union with the successor of Peter, we are a community of disciples that continues the evangelization begun by Franciscan missionaries 400 years ago through:

  • proclaiming the Gospel
  • celebrating the sacraments
  • teaching the faith
  • forming the faithful for works of service
  • evangelizing the inactive and the unchurched
  • …all of which bear fruit in the Kingdom of God.

The Archdiocesan Pastoral Plan needs the Annual Catholic Appeal to make its work a reality.
