> Sharing the Good News through words and actions, through Christian service and working for peace, justice and human dignity.
> Participating fully, consciously, actively and regularly in the celebrations of the sacramental life of the Catholic Church.
> Articulating the fundamental teachings of the Catholic faith and demonstrating a commitment to learning and growing in this faith.
> Applying Catholic ethics, virtues, principles, values and social teaching to moral decision- making, life situations, and in interactions with the larger culture.
> Discerning and using their gifts to actively belong to and participate in the life and mission of the parish, school, and larger community.
> Celebrating cultural/racial and ethnic diversity as a gift from God, and pursuing the development of Christian community across cultural/racial and ethnic backgrounds in their parishes, schools, and broader communities.
> Exploring God’s call to vocation through prayer, reflection, and discernment.
