PARISH MISSION STATEMENT
You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. (Mt 5:14)
Called to be a beacon of God’s
1. Place Spirituality and Prayer at the center of our lives. Invite everyone to live in a relationship with Christ.
2. Elevate Gospel and people over church rules. Don’t get so caught up with church regulations that you fail to see the importance of each person. All are welcome.
3. Encourage Stewardship - people's use of time, talent and treasure. Involve as many people as possible and expect people to use their gifts and to go beyond what is normally “expected.” Respond with heartfelt gratitude.
4. Embrace the "noble simplicity" of Vatican Council II. Be crisp, clear, simple, and honest. Insist on quality and truth in all our dealings.
5. Promote the formation of families and individuals. Concentrate on the whole person: mind, body, and spirit.
6. Cultivate transformation of the local community and the world. Gather in church to receive the grace to go out and transform the world and challenge impoverishment in its many forms. We are sent.
