Our Vision

The Catholic Church of Loikaw, being a community that is one in spirit and nourished
by the Word of God, and by promoting religious values and working human
development that is rooted on charity and peace so that all may have life in
abundance, must be a Proclaiming, Worshiping and Witnessing Community of God.                                

 

Our Mission

To see our vision, we commit:

  • To be instruments of God as prophets, priests and kings;
  • To build a church that is participative, inculturated, self-reliant and missionary in outlook;
  • To engage in dialogue with other religions by mutual understanding and
    cooperation;
  • To touch the hearts of the people, especially the poor through charitable
    assistance, socio economic projects, educational development and the use of
    modern media communication.
