The Vision and Mission Statement follows below.

Our Vision

To see the restoration of all of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit as a normal part of Catholic Church life, and lead people into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, and develop the fullness of the Holy Spirit in the lives of all believers.

Mission Statement

ACCR seeks to serve the Catholic Church by being one of the agents and instruments of the Holy Spirit working for the ongoing renewal and growth of the Church today.

We seek to participate with the Holy Spirit in the renewal of the Church by:

  •      Working to lead all people to a close, personal and lasting relationship with Jesus Christ, Lord of all aspects of their lives.
  •      Fostering the Baptism (or Release) of the Holy Spirit, received in the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation, as a means         of deepening the work of the Holy Spirit in the Catholic Church and in the lives of individuals.
  •      Encouraging the use of the Charismatic Gifts as an accepted and regular part of life in the Catholic Church.
  •      Encouraging people to participate fully in the life of their Parish.
