      We are a community united by our Faith in the Gospel of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.  We raise our minds in prayer-both liturgical and private.  The poor and those in need are our special concern.  We strive to educate and to form our children and ourselves in the teachings of Jesus as entrusted by Him to the Apostles and their successors in the Holy Catholic Church.  In a spirit of ecumenism, we join with other groups in mutual endeavors. 

      We invite and welcome others to join our community of Faith.  Generously, we give of our "Time, Talent and Treasure" to fulfill this mission.
