OUR MISSION:

To catechize is “to reveal in the Person of Christ the whole of God’s eternal design reaching fulfillment in that Person. It is to seek to understand the meaning of Christ’s actions and words and of the signs worked by him.” Catechesis aims at putting “people…in communion…with Jesus Christ: only he can lead us to the love of the Father in the Spirit and make us share in the life of the Holy Trinity.”

 ~Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 426

Therefore, it is our goal to lead youth, young adult, adult, and families to the person of Christ in order that they may know God’s Love; and to receive his grace. While we participate in God’s life, we are able to begin to understand who he has called us to be. In this he gives us our true identity. Furthermore, this identity is revealed through faith sharing of the community and participation in the sacraments.

"Lectio Divina", or "divine reading" is a method for praying with scripture. "As one reads and invites the Word to become a transforming lens that brings the events of daily living into focus, one can come to live more deeply and the presence of God in the events of each day."
