Adore Ministries is Catholic ministry, committed to orthodoxy and under the ecclesiastical vigilance of the Archbishop of Galveston-Houston. We are governed by a Board of Directors with spiritual direction and discernment from a Presbyteral Advisory Board.
Presbyteral Advisory Board
We believe the fullness of truth is contained within scripture with the magisterium and traditions of the Catholic Church.
We believe the more authentically we know, love, and serve God daily, the more “fully alive” we become. Thus this life constitutes a life-long journey toward ever-deeper relationship with God.
We believe, with St. Teresa of Avila, that “Christ has no hands, no feet on earth” but ours. And so we believe that it is through a mutual accompaniment of each other, marked by radical authenticity, vulnerability, and transparency, that we primarily come to know and be known, love and be loved, and serve be served by Him.
We believe that effective catechesis requires reaching both within and beyond parish walls and programs for a catechesis of the whole person.
Out of these beliefs, we have formed our Core Values. These are the principles that guide how we approach every aspect of our personal, communal, and missional lives. We refer to them when planning, prioritizing, and making decisions.
