We are blessed that you have chosen to join with us, as we have with you, in your faith journey – as together we live out our parish vision to form and send intentional, missionary disciples. Our mission, informed by this vision, is nothing short of the Great Commandment to: Love God, Love Others; and to fulfill the Great Commission: Make Disciples.
We invite you, no matter where you are on your journey of discipleship, to immerse yourself in these five commitments:
Worshipping – as we desire to in all things and all ways be centered in Christ, each of us participate consciously and actively in the worship and prayer life of the community, especially the weekly Eucharist, as well as personal prayer and the full sacramental life of the Church.
Growing – as we seek always to be equipped well for discipleship, each of us are committed to a lifelong journey of human and spiritual growth, to be formed in our faith during each season of our lives.
Serving – as our faith compels us to the mission of evangelization (the Great Commission to “go, make, teach, baptize), each of us serve the mission of the Church in some concrete, meaningful way, especially caring for the poor and marginalized.
Giving – as our Catholic tradition invites us into a lifestyle of stewardship, each of us are “intentional givers” – sacrificially and proportionally sharing our time, talent and treasure.
Connecting – as discipleship is lived in relationship, each of us is engaged in the parish family through some small group commitment, where holy encounter with Jesus and with others is lived, cherished, and a source of encouragement.
These five commitments of an intentional, missionary disciple appear as a challenge to each of us in our parish family, as they in a sense form the expectations of parish membership. They also appear as the focus of our energy as a parish staff, since attention to these areas are how we work as ministers to help form every member of our family in discipleship.
Our parish staff is both talented and dedicated, and fully committed to walking with you on your faith journey. I invite you to call our office to schedule a brief meeting with myself or one of our pastoral ministers, so that we can get to know you and your family, and learn how we can help you on your road to discipleship.
