  2. Instilling a sense of hope and opening up horizons for everyone, to enable personal fulfilment (Hope)
  3. Creating a sense of belonging so that everyone can flourish together, for the common good, through friendship and service (Community)
  4. Enabling them to value themselves and others with humility, compassion, forgiveness and reverence (Dignity)
