We are a diverse Christ-centered community reaching out to one another in love, service, kindness, and understanding. We foster unity through education and evangelization. We serve the poor and the needs of our sister parish. We celebrate the life of Christ through the Eucharist, Scripture, and the Sacraments of the Roman Catholic Church.
