Celebrating 70 years as a nurturing spiritual community in Christ Jesus, from which we go forth and serve God by the power of the Holy Spirit.
"This year we are being called to live generously during a major transition in the life of our parish."
We have begun our 2017 annual giving campaign: "Living Generously." In the coming weeks, we will explore together how we can live more generously as individuals and as a community of faith. On Nov. 13, we will celebrate Commitment Sunday when pledges will be offered as an act of worship and in response to all that God has provided. — Click to learn more about Living Generously
Living Generously is more than what we do with our financial resources. To live generously, we are also called to be open to new ideas, to welcome the stranger, to volunteer often, and to forgive those who have offended us. This year we are being called to live generously during a major transition in the life of our parish.
