We Welcome All

We have always seen ourselves as a “school of spirituality” since forming in 1982. We believe that our spiritual journey is a life-long endeavor. We seek to provide pathways for that journey to all people who seek a deepening relationship with God. We strive to live spiritually wholesome lives. We seek to deepen our knowledge of God, celebrate His presence and join Him in service to our brothers and sisters. We are committed to returning the gifts bestowed on us by caring for those in need. We focus on developing and nurturing the mind, body and spirit of each person who wishes to participate. We do this through strong liturgy, quality programs and enriching activities. We provide solid educational opportunities for all ages beginning with our Pre-school, Parish School of Religion, and Catholic Grade School. We enjoy a fully engaged Youth Ministry Program for teens. We celebrate and support families of all shapes and sizes. We have an active and vibrantly mature community, we affectionately call Yesterday’s Kids. We are over 1400 households strong and growing. We warmly invite all to join us as we seek to know, experience and follow Jesus Christ who is the Truth, the Light and the Way in our daily lives.

Sacraments

Jesus gave the Church the seven sacraments.  The sacraments are the main liturgical signs of the Church.  They make the Paschal Mystery of Jesus, who is always the main celebrant of each sacrament, present to us.  They make us sharers in the saving work of Christ and in the life of the Holy Trinity.
