As people of faith, we at Newman believe in the Trinity, the central mystery of Christian life and faith. We understand God, not as an individual but as a community of love. In other words, God’s very essence is loving relationship. Thus, we most reflect the image of God when we live in loving relationship with one another. Our truest identity is to be in communion with one another and with God. We attempt that communion whenever we sacrifice our own personal desires in order to tend to the needs of another.
