Our Mission Statement (Our Purpose)

Energized by the Eucharist and Scripture we are a welcoming and affirming community that celebrates Christ Jesus in our midst.  We value prayer, education, art, music, and the beauty of God’s creation in our quest for spiritual growth and social justice in the world.

Our Values

As a people of hope, we commit ourselves to respond to God’s call in our time by being:

     Prayerful - Mindful that God is always present, we celebrate Eucharist and gather in prayer and study.
     Servants - Willingly using our personal time and talents and treasure as stewards of God’s gifts in reaching out with justice and compassion to serve one another, children, the poor, the hospitalized and homebound, the hungry, the elderly, the marginalized and others in need.
     Witnesses - Actively sharing our faith with joy in the work place, at home, school, neighborhood and throughout the world by example, good will and our stewardship of finances and buildings, promotion of the arts, and protection of the environment.
     Partners - Committed to relationships with others in our related parishes and interfaith community in which mutual love and respect, care, truth and accountability will prosper, in God’s name we extend our welcome to all.

WE WELCOME YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE ON LIFE'S JOURNEY!
