Word From our Pastor

Welcome,

We are called to grow in our faith, be formed as disciples and help transform the world by the joy of the gospel. You are invited to join our parish family as we head to deeper waters, experience the presence of Christ and encourage one another to live a life worthy of the call we have received.  He is calling, let’s respond together as, “one body, one spirit in Christ.”

“Best Retreat Ever”

50 of our teens participated in the Steubenville Youth Conference in Steubenville, OH on July 14th-16th. Our very own, Deacon John Martinez was with them. Upon their arrival home, one teen remarked that this was "the best retreat ever and totally a life-changing experience." Thank you to all of our parishioners for making donations and sponsoring students. It would not have been possible without you. You can certainly be sure that we were praying for you!

VBS Celebrates that We are Wonderfully Made By God

Our children discovered that they are lovingly crafted by God. On this interactive adventure, curious kids became hands-on inventors and experienced God - the ultimate maker - in new and wildly creative ways. Our LARGEST VBS yet: 350 children, young people and adults journeyed in faith together as the fun factory made disciples and called each participant to be a joyful proclaimer of the gospel! Rotating through 5 stations, taking part in fun interactive exercises, learning new songs and celebrating their faith brought the Bible and the teachings of Jesus to life. Our next Vacation Bible School "Shipwrecked" will take place June 18-22, 2018.
