JORNADA NYC Coronavirus - Resources and Information
At the Jornada Movement, we are greatly saddened by the tragic events that have transpired across our country. Jornadistas stand against any and all acts of racism, hate, and violence. Central to our identity is our Catholicism, focused on living Christ's commandments; namely, loving God and loving neighbor.
The Jornada Movement strives to embody what it means to be One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. That means we are all-embracing and all-loving. We know first hand the privilege of helping others encounter Christ from different backgrounds, cultures, colors and ages. We are proud of our diversity, and celebrate our differences in spirit of fellowship and unity.
Our mission is "youth evangelizing youth" so that Jornadistas can better our community, our nation, and the world not just in the future but for today. We do so by using the gifts of the Holy Spirit:
Wisdom helps us recognize the importance of others and the importance of keeping God central in our lives.
Understanding is the ability to comprehend the meaning of God's message.
Knowledge is the ability to think about and explore God's revelation, and also to recognize there are mysteries of faith beyond us.
Counsel is the ability to see the best way to follow
God's plan when we have choices that relate to him.
Fortitude is the courage to do what one knows is right.
Piety helps us pray to God in true devotion.
Fear of the Lord is the feeling of amazement before God, who is all-present, and whose friendship we do not want to lose.
The Jornada Movement remains committed to being a movement that promotes hope, peace, love, and justice.
