Masses at our parish are celebrated with reverence and the homilies are "relevant" in the best sense of that word. Our parish ministries, including our school, are focused on spreading the liberating truth of Christ, forming disciples, and equipping disciples to serve others in the name of Christ. In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, we are looking to add staff members who will partner with us to help us more effectively evangelize, form disciples, and equip them to joyfully utilize their gifts for the building up of the Kingdom of God and the salvation of souls.
