Parish Mission Statement
We are Christians in the Catholic tradition called by the Holy Spirit in our Baptism to proclaim God’s saving love through Jesus Christ. By praying and celebrating the Eucharist together, we are inspired to grow in faith and holiness and to share our time, talent and treasure with others.
