Mission Statement – Our Parish seeks to live a family- supporting one another, open to all comers, and building a community where each person feels wanted and cared for. To make this happen, we will work to grow in holiness through prayer and service and we will try to show God’s love in our daily lives.

Please pray for Tom Walshe and David Costello recently deceased and for those whose anniversary occurs around this time.
