Our Mission

We live God's Word and continue His Work.
 

Pastor's Welcome

Welcome to our website! Please enjoy your visit with us.

Christ is Risen! Alleluia! Let us celebrate our Savior!

As Pope Francis said in his 2013 Easter message, "Let us accept the grace of Christ's Resurrection!"

Because of Him, we became an Easter people. Because of Him, we are grateful for every good gift, for every blessing, joy and most especially for parishioners such as yourselves!

Easter does not end on Easter Sunday; rather it is celebrated for fifty days ending on Pentecost Sunday.

"The fifty days from the Sunday of the Resurrection to Pentecost Sunday are celebrated in joy and exultation as one feast day, indeed as one "great Sunday." These are the days above all others in which the Alleluia is sung.

The Sundays of this time of year are considered to be Sundays of Easter and are called, after Easter Sunday itself, the Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, and Seventh Sundays of Easter. This sacred period of fifty days concludes with Pentecost Sunday."

- Quoted from Liturgical Notes for Easter
United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

It is our desire to live God’s Word and continue His works, by sharing God’s warmth with everyone who comes through this website and everyone who walks through our doors.

St. Augustine - Bishop of Hippo and "Doctor of the Church"

Our Patron Saint is accepted by most scholars to be the most important figure in the ancient Western church. After a rather unremarkable childhood, marred only by a case of stealing pears, Augustine drifted through several philosophical systems before converting to Christianity at the age of thirty-one.
