• Our Mission Statement

    "To find faith and share faith; to believe in the Spirit, and the Spirit's work in our world; to make one's life a gift to God, and to live as Jesus did."

Annual Parish Picnic

Our Annual Parish Picnic will be held Sunday, September 28th following the Noon Mass in the Parish Center.  Sign up at the Parish Life table after Masses on the weekend so we have an idea of how many hot dogs and hamburgers to buy.  There is no charge, but we ask that you bring a favorite dish or dessert to share, according to your last name:

A – F, Salad;      G – L, Veggies;      M – R, Dessert;      S – Z, Casseroles

Please deliver your dishes to the Parish Center between 10:30 and noon.  Hope to see you there!
