PARISH LIFE

BUILDING OUR COMMUNITY OF FAITH


What Parish Life Means

A parish is more than a group of people who see each other at Mass once a week. A parish is a community of believers who grow in faith and share experiences with each other. Parish Life is how we build that community. We offer events and small group meetings to help parishioners connect with each other and share in each other’s faith journey.
