We are a multicultural Roman Catholic Community responding to the call of Christ.
As disciples of Christ led by the Spirit, we are continuously striving to create a Christian Community
that welcomes and accepts all people. We hold all life sacred and live out our discipleship as faithful
stewards of our time, talent, and treasure so that enlightened by God's Word and nourished by the
Eucharist we may labor tirelessly to make God's Kingdom visibly present among us.
