The Community

So you made it past the first page and are interested in knowing more about our community? You've come to the right place! Here you can find out all about the different Ministries, Groups, and Organizations that feed our vibrant community. For convenience, they are organized within seven different pillars: Liturgy and Sanctification, Prayer, Education and Faith Formation, Pastoral Renewal and Communication, Parish Life, Charity and Social Justice, and Finance and Stewardship. Each pillar is represented by one or more Liaisons who are also members of the Parish Pastoral Council. Please explore to your hearts content; if you have any questions, feel free to contact us!
