Our Vision & Mission


Our Vision:

We are a Resurrection people, rooted in our rich Catholic heritage.  We are growing in the Spirit, as individuals and as a faith community.  

We answer the call to live out our Baptismal vocation in our daily lives, bringing the light of Christ's presence to our families, workplaces, neighborhoods and the world.


Our Mission:  

We dare to live the life of Jesus Christ, transforming discouragement into hope, fear into love, isolation into community.
