WELCOMING YOU HOME
Our parish opens its doors to welcome and embrace all in our community. We strive through worship, hospitality, and service to receive those seeking a spiritual home. In the midst of diversity of thought, lifestyle, nationality, economic status, and age, we endeavor to live as a community of faith and invite you to join our family – a family seeing to know, love, and live the message of Jesus Christ.
"Catholic means universal. No matter who you are, where you come from, what language you speak or lifestyle you lead, you are always welcome to call this place your parish home."
From our adult choir, to our green team, to our social justice group, there's something for everyone.
Consider getting involved in parish life and joining one of our many ministries!

Updates & Upcoming Events
as of Saturday, 2.24.2024
During Lent, Fr. Donald Baker will lead a Theology Thursday series in an examination of the Passion Narratives in the four gospels. How is each gospel account different from the other three; what do they tell us about the suffering and death of Jesus; what does that mean for us today? Consider joining us for this Lenten experience beginning on Thursday, February 22 through Thursday, March 21. The event begins at 6:30 in the Parish Center. Please RSVP here!
Beginning on February 16, and continuing on the Fridays in Lent, we will pray Stations of the Cross in the church following the noon Mass.
The next Social Justice Ministry meeting will take place Wednesday, March 6 at 6:30 PM in the parish center. Together with Fr. Baker and Taryn, the group will discuss the memoir Take This Bread by Sara Miles and making connections to upcoming service initiatives. (If you'd like to order/read the book to participate in our discussion, click here!) Reading encouraged, but NOT required! All are welcome.
If your child is preparing to celebrate First Holy Communion this Spring, the First Communion Family Retreat is on Saturday, March 2, 2:00 - 5:00 PM in the church. This is for families in parish religious education, St. Stephen of Hungary School, and The Caedmon School.
Our Annual Parish Retreat Day will be on the morning of Saturday, March 23. All adults are welcome to prepare for Holy Week with this morning of reflection. Our presenter will be Fr. Tony Ciorra, and the theme is “Make Me a Channel of Your Peace.”
