We are a community dedicated to promoting the living Gospel of Jesus Christ, through its actions of welcome, outreach, hospitality, and prayer. And by God’s grace, our community strives to live the universal call to holiness.
Our community is warm, friendly, and inclusive. We welcome everyone, no matter your ethnicity, social status, educational background, and wherever you are in life. We draw inspiration from Pope Francis, who declares, “May the church be the place of God’s mercy and love, where everyone can feel welcomed, loved, forgiven, and encouraged to live according to the good life of the Gospel. And in order to make others feel welcomed, loved, forgiven, and encouraged, the church must have open doors so that all might enter. And we must go out of those doors and proclaim the Gospel.”
We are a loving, caring, and giving community. Our parish community may not be big in size, but it is huge in its acts of generosity and love. Our parishioners joyfully display their care and affection towards one another, whether during liturgical celebrations or social gatherings.
We are a sharing community. Our love and care go beyond the boundaries of our parish community, through various ministries and programs that reach out and share God’s love and providence with our needy sisters and brothers. “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:40)
We are a praying community. Apart from our daily and weekend Masses, we also have a growing devotion to the Most Blessed Sacrament, with the Adoration at the chapel from 9 AM to 5 PM on weekdays. And by God’s grace, we plan to complete the building of our Grotto of Our Lady of Lourdes, a place of prayer where we can renew and strengthen our love for the Blessed Virgin Mary and one another, as one family of God. “The family that prays together stays together.” (Fr. Patrick Peyton)
And finally, I personally invite you to come and visit our parish to experience in person the living Gospel of Jesus Christ and be one with the community in prayer as we strive to live the universal call to holiness.
