We, as a parish family, commit ourselves to grow in our faith, to share what we know, and to be an everlasting light, drawing others to Christ by living His gospel.





                    We Believe In

God, the Father Almighty, creator of Heaven and Earth.
Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified, died and was buried, rose from the dead, and is now seated at the right hand of the Father.
The Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and life everlasting.



 
Founded on the Rock

[Jesus said to Simon] "And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it."  
(Matthew 16:18)



 
The Bulwark of Truth

The church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth.  
(1 Timothy 3:15b)

 

Guided by the Holy Spirit


[Jesus said to his disciples]  "I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate to be with you always, the Spirit of truth," (John 14: 16-17a)



We Believe in the Dignity of the Human Person, which includes the Protection of Children and Those Who Serve Them.

Thoughts of a Few January Saints



"We can believe what we choose.  We are answerable for what we choose to believe."


    St John Neumann  January 4





"Practice charity with your neighbor--and this doesn't mean only to give money to the poor.  There are many ways to practice charity.  We could, for example, keep ourselves from examining our neighbor's conscience."   


St. Andre Bessette  January 6





"Many of the people who look forward to a long life put off doing good works, since they think that they will have plenty of time before they die.  As for me, I prefer to be among those who consider that they have no time to lose if they wish to give God all the glory that they can before they die."


St. Margaret of Hungary    January 18






"Half an hour's meditation each day is essential, except when you are busy.  Then a full hour is needed."


St. Francis deSales    January 24






"The things that we love tell us what we are."


St. Thomas Aquinas       January 28






"Act today in such a way that you need not blush tomorrow."


St. John Bosco     January 31
