Spirituality is a pathway to God. Spirituality is engagement with God. All religions have a sense of the transcendent. In Christianity we call the transcendent God. In Christianity, we believe that God has revealed this transcendence in the person of Jesus Christ. Spirituality may be seen in traditions and rituals. Spirituality is also seen on how spiritual people try to live their lives. A spiritual person can be recognized by their virtues and values. - Bob Mulligan, OSFS
Prayer offers an invitation for our heartfelt communication with God who desires to be in a deeply personal relationship with each of us in our everyday lives. - Cathy Looker, SSJ
Service is coming face to face with the needs and humanity of another. To be of service is look the other in the eye, start a conversation, and recognize that our mutuality is greater than independence. We make meaning when we contribute our time, energy and gifts to benefit the lives of others. - Jackie Newns
