For the Son of man also came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

Mark 10:42

Be Merciful as God is Merciful

Jesus clearly calls his disciples to be merciful as he is merciful. Faith and good works are essential aspects of every Christian community and they naturally flow from the celebration of the Eucharist. At the end of every Holy Mass, we are sent forth into the world to spread the love of Christ in corporal and spiritual works of mercy.

At every moment there are members of our community celebrating important moments in their lives or facing obstacles to a happy and healthy life. We are very sensitive to the many elements of community life and personal life. It is our hope that our parish can be a refuge for you and a source of support and celebration. We strive to be a caring community.
