“We are a pilgrim church, a community of
believers, the living Body of Christ.
Our mission is to make God’s presence visible, to proclaim God’s
presence in our world. We witness that
presence by living the Gospel images of Christ as shepherd, teacher, priest,
and servant. The seed of faith was sown
in our community many years ago. Today,
like the yeast that works in bread, that faith continues to enliven us as we
share our faith with our neighbors, region, archdiocese, and universal church.
