We believe our lives are journeys in Faith; where sometimes the road is straight, but at times the road is twisting and bumpy. No matter where you are in your journey, we want to help you in your continued spiritual growth as a Catholic Christian, to this end, we offer you this website of our Parish.

We hope that you will find this webite helpful. It lists all of the ministries of our Parish. Whether you are seeking guidance, education, or fellowship, I am confident we have a ministry for you. If you are looking to get more involved in the Parish, I hope that the Lord's calling to you can be fulfilled by one of these ministries. Either way, we hope that at least you can see the ways that your Parish is living out Jesus' call to spread the Good News.
