Parish Life & Parish Organizations
Our mission is to provide opportunities for the parish family to celebrate our faith, to enable the integration of faith and life, and to encourage spiritual development. Through programs of worship, education, and community outreach we work to assist people in their journey toward a deeper understanding of what it means to be Catholic. We aspire to create a community that is welcoming of all and an environment of fellowship and hospitality where we are nurtured, refreshed and empowered to be a living church.
Our goal is to provide opportunities for High School age youth to build strong healthy relationships with God and with others. Through service, social, and spiritual dimensions of their lives they reveal Christ’s presence in our organization, parish and community.
