We are the Catholic Community of Copperas Cove, a city of some 35,000 people in central Texas-and part of the Diocese of Austin. Our city and our parish have a special relationship to the United States Army at adjacent Fort Hood.
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.

In the Acts of the Apostles, we learn that God has opened the door of faith for the early Church.But did you know that God has opened the door of faith for each one us and he invites us to step through the threshold into a deeper relationship with him.The upcoming Year of Faith is an opportunity for every Catholic to turn towards Jesus Christ, encounter him in the Sacraments, especially the Eucharist and rediscover the Faith and Church.
With his Apostolic Letter of October 11, 2011,Porta Fidei. . . , Pope Benedict XVI declared that a "Year of Faith" will begin on October 11, 2012 and conclude on November 24, 2013. October 11, 2012, the first day of the Year of Faith, is the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council. . . (Vatican II) and also the twentieth anniversary of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. During the Year of Faith, Catholics are asked to study and reflect on the documents of Vatican II and the catechism so that they may deepen their knowledge of the faith.
