Our Mission

Always in union with our Bishop and the Magisterium of the Catholic Church, we, as disciples of Christ, realize that everything is a gift of God. We serve the people of God through Sacramental and Liturgical celebrations and on-going faith formation. As grateful disciples, we cultivate, nurture, and develop our gifts, expressed in spiritual and social events, enabling us to personally live the Gospel of Jesus as Catholic individuals and families in our communities.
