Mission: Mining the work of the Spirit in each people. Culture is best understood as the cumulative dialogue through history between the initiative of the Spirit and the responses of humankind in its varied environments. The goal of the MCSCV is to promote a creative mining of the resulting cultural traditions and their application to the issues of contemporary life.
