Catholic saints are holy people and human people who lived extraordinary lives. Each saint the Church honors responded to God's invitation to use his or her unique gifts. God calls each one of us to be a saint.
We are a multi-ethnic community established in 1963 that fosters faith, hope and love. We stand ready to welcome with love and friendship all who come to us. We are committed in strengthening them through programs of social, educational and spiritual values. We encourage our families to be active participants in the life of the Church; to enjoy the celebration of the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist. Our families are animated in worshiping together and praying frequently in their homes.
The church has painted portraits of the Passion of Christ that bring to life Christ's experience in the face of human injustice and cruelty. They are very helpful visual aids during the Stations of the Cross. Located within the main building of the church is the Mary Chapel. Here you are provided with the best atmosphere for prayer and meditation in the presence of the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar.
We hope that after you visit our website, you will visit our church and experience our parish community.
