Our ongoing mission as a parish family is to form intentional disciples. Through our parish school and PSR programs, adult faith enrichment opportunities, the celebration of the sacraments – especially the nourishment we receive from Sunday Eucharist, and the efforts of dozens of small, focused communities (just check out the front of the bulletin!) where faith is lived and shared, we are forming disciples! All of this reflects the MINISTRY we extend to one another, to those of us who are committed to and active in this parish family.
But MINISTRY is only a part of our purpose. The other, and even more demanding component of who we are and why we’re here is MISSION. MISSION asks the question, Who is not at the table? We invite the unbelievers, uncommitted, unchurched, lapsed Catholics in our community to discover what we treasure: the irresistible love of God poured out in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit, and draw them into relationship with Christ and the Church?
My faith continues to be fed and nurtured by how beautifully and intentionally each of you express and share your faith in Christ. Let us continue to give this gift to each other, and let us extend it as our Christmas gift to our guests and
visitors this year!
