Our parish gathers together to worship God, listen to the Scriptures, and celebrate the sacraments.  As we do so, we build up “table fellowship” that binds us together.  As a community of faith we also understand our obligations to our neighbors and seek to serve their needs as we would serve Christ.  We enjoy the company of other parishioners and meet in various activities to share our lives and the joy of Christian life. Participation in the life of our parish is important to all of us.  It is where we continue to grow as a parish.

Participation in Sunday Mass is at the core of our identity as Catholics.  Our parish takes that vision seriously and we attempt to schedule weekend Masses to assist all parishioners in making Mass a priority.
