We, the people of St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church, are a pilgrim people, a people on a journey. We struggle to live out the gospel in the context of our parish and our community while we travel together the path to the kingdom of God. We respect the beliefs and traditions of other Christian churches and we strive to cooperate with them in serving those in our community. We are to be a people of hospitality toward vacationers, college students and seasonal laborers, making special effort to help them feel welcome among us. We believe the various cultures within our community are gifts from God, and rather than assimilate them, we seek to be enriched by them. We accept one another and our different backgrounds while at the same time recognizing we are indeed a common Christian family. Whether cooperating with other Christian churches of the community of Holland, welcoming visitors and seasonal laborers, or accepting one another within our own parish community, we seek the unity that God wills, for we share "one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all, and works through all, and is in all." (Ephesians 4:5-6)
