Our Calling

“For this reason, I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that according to the riches of His glory He may grant you to be strengthened with might through His spirit in the inner man, and that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may have the power to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Now to Him who by the power at work within is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, to him be glory in the Church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, for ever and ever. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:14-21)

Mission Statement

We are a community of families rooted in the heart of Jesus that integrates the Catholic faith into a dynamic lifestyle of healing, restoration, and holiness.

Strategic Vision

Arbor Family Wellness Village is a duplicatable model that can be found in multiple locations, providing families an abundance of resources needed to thrive in modern culture. They come to discover their identity and purpose as children of God, and go on to share their gifts and talents to bring healing back into their homes and communities.

Our Village families will be known for their commitment to personal growth and faith-centered lifestyles, filled with authentic and generous love for one another within the domestic church. The impact of this will ultimately transform society and culture.

Statement of Identity

IDENTITY AS CHILDREN OF THE FATHER

Arbor Family Wellness Village is a community of families formed as instruments to glorify God the Father as we respect and honor His divine image in one another.

Where families can live the beauty of the Ten Commandments:

  1. Loving God above all things
  2. God’s name always being adored, proclaimed, and glorified
  3. Worshipping the Lord together on the Sabbath
  4. Healing parent-child relationships
  5. Upholding and defending the dignity of life
  6. Strengthening marriages
  7. Fostering a spirit of generosity within the family and community
  8. Loving our neighbor as ourselves
  9. Developing a spirit of gratitude for our spouses as gifts from God
  10. Promoting a lifestyle of simplicity and contentment

DYNAMIC OF AGAPE LOVE IN THE SON

United in the name of Jesus through His most holy Cross, our Village families love and serve one another within a community of acceptance and compassion. We recognize that we all have burdens and wounds, yet we are called to journey together in a powerful dynamic of giving and receiving that allows for growth and healing.

COMMUNITY IMPACT THROUGH THE HOLY SPIRIT

Empowered by the Spirit of God, the Village is a place centered on Eucharistic living, strengthening the domestic church and the local parish. Local parishes are able to work together within a region to make changes in the greater community. Village families are called to use their charisms to build God’s kingdom on earth with our sights set on Heaven.
