Life is not a possession to be defended but a gift to be shared


At the core of every human being there is a place from where we think and act.  It impacts us personally and our interactions with others.  We all have been given an interior map which charts our life on a God-ward course.  It provides beliefs and practices tested by traditions.  We have the tools to guide us, but in the confusion which characterizes cultures and societies we may no longer recognize their existence.

Walk with crossMultiply the HARVEST has a core spirituality which holds human dignity at its core.  No one can truly decide the worth of an individual for them, but by the example lived by people who proclaim human life as sacred with an inherent dignity, a foundation is laid with moral justice.

We live out a sense of being intertwined with others and this guides us to look beyond ourselves for the greater good of others.  We live oneness, but not sameness.

Using the key principles of Catholic Social Teaching as our guiding tools we witness to a spirituality which acts humbly, honestly, responsibly and ethically showing reverence for God, the people and God's creation.
