A Community of Disciples
nourished by the Word of God,

and Striving to be a Church
that is poor and for the poor,
with Mary, Mother of the Word, as model.

implementation of Vatican II?s Constitution on Divine Revelation (Dei Verbum)
and the Plenary Council of the Philippines? (PCP II) vision of a Church of
the Poor in our reading, studying,
praying, living, sharing and celebrating the Word of God, to ?animate every
pastoral activity in the Church with the Word of God?. (VD 73) .
