The American Catholic Church In The United States

Vocations Office, 5595 Rivendell Place

The Mission of "The American Catholic Church in the United States" is to respond to the command of Jesus the Christ-To Teach, Preach, and To Sanctify. To Teach and Preach love among all people through the Gospel, and to Sanctify through the Seven Sacraments.

The Mission to administer to the People of God, through the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy, which are:

The Corporal Works Of Mercy

_Feed the hungry

Give drink to the thirsty

Clothe the naked

Give shelter to the homeless

Visit the imprisoned

Care for the sick

Bury the dead

The Spiritual Works of Mercy

Admonish the sinner

Instruct the ignorant

Advise the perplexed

Comfort the unhappy

Bear wrongs patiently

Forgive all injuries

Pray for the living and the dead

The Mission to follow the example of its Patron Saint, St. Francis of Assisi, in his prayer of peace:

Lord; make the people of this Church an instrument of your peace;

Where there is hatred, let us so love

Where there is injury, let us pardon

Where there is doubt, let us show faith

Where there is despair, let us offer hope

Where there is darkness, let us bring light

And where there is sadness, let us bring joy.

We ask the Divine Master, to grant that we many not so much seek to be consoled as to console others;

To be understood as to understand;

To be loved as to love

for it is in giving that we will receive, it is in pardoning, that we will be pardoned, and it is in dying that we will be born to eternal life.
