Welcome to Our Parish

There are three goals that I have for our parish: that all of our parishioners would learn the faith more deeply; live that faith more ardently with the grace given through the sacraments and prayer; and that we would have a stronger and broader stewardship toward our parish.  We have been doing these things, as does every parish, but it takes a deliberate and conscious effort to make these goals a living reality in the parish itself.  A parish is made up of individuals, and the more each person takes these goals to heart, the more the parish as a whole can be a living witness of the Gospel and a brighter reflection of Christ Himself.  People will be able to identify certain characteristics about that parish.  It is my hope that our parish will exude the characteristics contained in the acronym HUG: Humility, Unity, and Gratitude.
