Faith is about belief, relationships and action. It is not simply belief in truths or teachings, but is about the values, which are the focus of our lives. Faith is a relationship with God who engages our whole person, our personal response to the mystery of God present in our human experience. Faith is expressed as a way of living, behaving and engagement with our world.
Excellence calls us to the full development of every dimension of the person, linked to the development of a sense of Christian values and commitment to the service of others, giving priority to the needs of the poor and disadvantaged and a willingness to work with others for the good of all in the service and promotion of the reign of God in our time.
