Guided by the Holy Spirit, our mission as a Catholic community of faith is to challenge and support one another while humbly living the gospel message and serving the common good as witnesses to Jesus Christ. We strive to worship our God by responding to the needs of the parish community; fostering spiritual growth, providing exceptional Catholic educational programs, and reaching out with love and compassion to serve all.
Life-long faith formation is essential to spiritual growth, and many dedicated and talented individuals play roles in the creation and celebration of our liturgical services. Contact the parish office for information about joining our liturgical support teams.
