A message from Father Mike Foley
  Welcome to Our Parish

 Under the protection of the Mother of God, we are a faith community called by the Father,
energized by the Son, and moved by the Spirit to unite in witnessing and proclaiming the Good News. We share in friendship, gather in worship, and do proclaim our desire to minister, welcome, celebrate and extend His Kingdom.
