Parish - General Information
Parish mission Statement:
Our mission is to open “the door of faith” to our parishioners to make possible the life of communion with God and the transformation of the heart. The fruit of this transformation will be to unite in charity our diverse congregation and surrounding community; “breaking down the dividing wall” (Ephesians 2:14). As members of the one body of Christ, we accept our responsibilities as good stewards of His great gifts.
If you are moving into the parish, out of the parish or even within the parish, please notify the church office so that we can correct our records. Stop by the office during office hours or the vestibule of the Church after Mass to pick up a registration form. Forms can also be found here. After filling it out, return it to the office and pick up a welcome bag full of church related items and literature. Cannot make it to the office? Drop the registration form in the offertory basket at Mass instead.
