2016 Journey of Hearts & Hands: Rock the Mission!
"The Lord is my rock . . . in whom I take refuge."
~ Psalm 18:2
"In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, we begin our Diocesan Appeal, Rock the Mission, with hearts and hands renewed by the youthful vigour of Jesus Christ. We are invited by this year's Appeal to encounter Jesus Christ, not only ourselves, but to allow our institutions to open wide their doors, Holy Doors of Mercy. We really want the whole Church in this Diocese to become an encounter with Jesus Christ, who is the Rock of our refuge, who is our secure hope, who is the One who can truly bring healing and peace and, indeed, the joy of Good News."
~ Bishop Gary Gordon
