Parish Mission Statement

Redeemed and united by Christ’s love,

we welcome all to celebrate, grow, and serve with us,

we deepen our faith to be a reflection of Christ

through discipleship and service to others,

and we strive to worship God with joy and devotion.

Strengthened by his Body and Blood we become the Body of Christ

to take up the Cross and make Jesus known, loved, and served.
