Parish Mission Statement

Guided by the love of Jesus Christ and in the spirit of our patron Saint Francis of Assisi, we seek to deepen our understanding of our Catholic faith and to bear witness with other churches to peace and justice through social outreach.

We also desire to provide a welcoming environment to all who come to worship God in Word and Sacrament and to live a spirituality that draws others to our spiritual home.
