We believe we are called to praise the living and triune God in worship, to live out lives of love and charity toward the world, and to spread the good news of the Gospel to a world hungry for God.

Our Bishop

Bishop Akiyama’s passion for living into the charisms of preaching, teaching, and the sacerdotal work of the priesthood continues to form her as a spiritual leader. Speaking the truth in love expressed through authenticity, trustworthiness, compassion and clarity of vision are the hallmarks of her spiritual leadership.
