Our Values form a culture that is uniquely St Agnes’ Catholic Parish.
Nourished by Faith
Christ is at the heart of all that we do at St Agnes’ Catholic Parish. We believe that our services are strengthened by our foundation of faith. By leading with heart and humility we are able to reach out to all on the journey, particularly those in need. Sharing our faith with others allows us to deepen our own faith and encourages a positive atmosphere in which the joy of Christ may manifest itself.
Being committed to those who entrust themselves to us is a responsibility we take seriously. We believe in being honest, ethical, and fair in everything we do. This framework of trust supports smooth and transparent conduct of all Parish services. Leading by example, accepting responsibility and holding ourselves accountable aligns us with our goal of always doing the right thing.
Empowered to Excellence
We believe that excellence and innovation is driven by the needs of our community and we continuously strive to ensure our services deliver a positive impact. The St Agnes’ Catholic Parish culture embraces and encourages opportunities where learning and improvement enables people to realise their full potential. We recognise that performance through improvements in efficiency, productivity, and quality is linked to innovation.
Service before Self
At St Agnes’ Catholic Parish, the very essence of who we are compels us to minister to and for others. Guided by the Spirit, we welcome and accept people wherever they are on their journey and respond to their
needs accordingly. We act with respect, kindness, courtesy, humility and compassion to all. Just as Jesus washed the feet of the disciples, we, too, are called to serve others.
We take responsibility for all that has been entrusted to us from those who have come before us and we believe in preserving it for those who will come after us. We are committed to utilising and developing our services in ways that are responsible, valuable, productive and sustainable to deliver justice to Christ’s people and planet. Embracing courage along with responsibility and integrity will drive our achievement of equality, freedom, fairness, and justice for all.
United as ‘One Body’
As a community, we are driven by collaboration, respect, communication and accountability. We believe in creating a spirit of belonging, unity and interdependence based on mutual trust and respect. The St Agnes’ Catholic Parish culture supports productive teams that share common goals, a common vision and work in an unselfish manner. We are ‘One Body Many Parts’ (Corinthians 12:12-27).
