Our Values


Christi simus, non nostri. “We belong to Christ, not ourselves.”  –St. Columbanus of Bobbio (543-615)

1 - You are here because God wanted you here. Our primary identity is as beloved sons and beloved daughters of God.

2- We learn and pray so we can lead and serve. We build virtue so to be Christ for one another.

3 - As pilgrims on a journey together, attending Mass and receiving the Sacraments trains us to endure the trials of life and prepares us for eternal life in Heaven.
