Our Mission

We, the Asian Catholic Community of the Diocese of Rochester, are a community of communities united by our Catholic faith, Asian culture and traditional values. In the spirit of “Harmony in Faith,” we are called to:

  • Embrace all God’s people as brothers and sisters in Christ
  • Share the Good News and be a witness to others
  • Live a profound spirituality rooted in prayer and tradition
  • Honor our rich cultural heritage and share our gifts with the Church

To learn more about the Asian Catholic Communities in the Diocese of Rochester and our priorities for ministry, please read the Diocesan Pastoral Plan for Ministry with Asian and Pacific Islanders.
