 We aspire to be a vibrant, joyful faith community adhering to the beliefs and traditions of the Catholic Church to demonstrate our love of God and love of neighbour.

as a Catholic community is to focus on:

  • Worship
  • Welcoming
  • Service
  • Teaching and Learning and
  • Resource Management

Achieving balance among these elements enables us to live our faith in a way that is most appropriate for each member of our community, while also respecting the preferences of others.

Each parishioner is a very important part of our parish.

Our Core Values
Holiness: We lift up our lives to God through prayer, sacrifice and our daily actions.

Compassion & Service: We demonstrate genuine care, support and concern for others.

Stewardship: We make a personal commitment of time, talent and treasure to provide caring, responsible leadership that strengthens the parish and reaches out to the broader community.

Pursuit of Learning: We use formal and informal opportunities concerning faith and life that can be learned and applied by parishioners of all ages.

Evangelization: We reach out to all people searching for a way to pursue their own faith journey by sharing the teachings and the spirit of Christ.

Our Parish Family extends a warm invitation and welcome to newcomers and all who, for any reason, have been separated from the practice of their Catholic faith. We seek to provide an opportunity for Catholics who have been away from the life of the Church for some time, for whatever reason, to establish reconnection through the healing of any hurt that may have created division and through the acquisition of a renewed understanding of the Church and its mission. Our goal is to provide as much information as possible toward reconciliation.
