PASTORAL CARE & SERVICE

LOVING GOD BY LOVING OTHERS


Dedicated to Helping Our Neighbors

Jesus calls each of us to love one another as He loves us. He also said whatever we to for others we do for Him. When we give food to the hungry, when we visit the lonely or imprisoned, when we pray for others, we are showing our love and care for others and for Jesus.

Our parish is very active in its care for and support of those in need. You can learn more about these initiatives and how you can get involved by checking out the following pages or by calling the Parish Office.
