Diocesan Mission Statement


God of everlasting love and power,
you call each of us by name and bring us together
as your holy people.

Led by the Holy Spirit, formed as disciples
and sent as apostles,
we the Catholic Church of Southeast Alaska
embrace the call of Jesus, “to put out into the
deep for a catch”:  Duc in altum!  (Lk. 5:4).

Rooted in prayer, we respond to your call to holiness by
reaching out to our sisters and brothers of diverse cultures,
scattered across the vast land and waters we call home.

Transformed by your ever-present grace,
as stewards of your gifts,
we proclaim your Gospel,
celebrate the sacraments,
serve those in need,
and invite all to know, love and follow Jesus Christ.

        And to this we say, “Amen!”
