Mission & Vision

Our Mission

To nourish our love of God through Jesus Christ under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Centered in the Eucharist, we are developing a faith community through prayer, education, worship, and Christian fellowship.

As stewards of God's love, we strive to share our gifts and talents for the service of God and all His people.

Our Vision

To invite people to become Disciples of Jesus Christ through proclamation of the Gospel and inclusion within the parish family.

Vision is an essential part of our life of faith. As Proverbs pointedly states, “Where there is no vision, people perish” (29:18); but where there is vision there is success. And the Bible goes on to say, “Vision is a witness for the appointed time, a testimony to the end; wait for it, it will surely come” (Hab 2:3).

The Faith Forward parish visioning process was inaugurated on September 4th, 2016. From the beginning we have striven to invite every member of our parish into dialogue about their hopes, dreams, needs and desires for our parish.

The core of this vision is Discipleship and it has three goals:

  • Stewardship
  • Evangelization
  • Parish Operations

Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive, it is in pardoning that we are pardoned, and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
