Our parish leadership team is also continually looking at ways to engage the community and help grow its faith and mission.

Faith makes us walk with Jesus on the roads of this world, in the certainty that the power of His Spirit will bend the forces of evil, subjecting them to the power of God’s love.” – @ Pontifex Jul 6 2020
