Our goal is to enable all of our parishioners to fully embrace their Baptism into Christ Jesus, and to respond “Yes” to God’s invitation to relationship. We are committed to providing ample opportunities for our parishioners to cultivate, sustain, and deepen that relationship so that they may come to boldly profess “Christ Lives in Me!” This website contains valuable information about how we as a parish community accomplish this goal and serves as an excellent resource for information about the life and happenings of our parish community as well as providing ample information on how one can become more involved in parish life. So sit back, surf away, and enjoy!
