“As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace”

– 1 Pt 4:10

Parish life encompasses the elements of Worship, Formation, Service, and Community. In the life of a parish, we give of ourselves—our time, talents, and treasures or resources—in various ways to help others. While all ministers of the Church help serve the mission of the church, we separate out Ministries to refer to all Liturgical Ministries during Worship and Formation to focus on learning.



Worship involves a sense of a call from the Lord to serve and focus on spiritual life. It serves to build up the Body of Christ through personal and communal prayer.



Faith Formation, also referred to as Word, is our lifelong journey of learning and extending our knowledge about our Catholic faith.


Service represents works of charity and justice. It’s a constitutive part of parish life and a duty that we cannot disregard. Through service we administer to the needs of others for the purpose of peace, justice, and human development.


Community is the relationship with our parish family that draws us together. It centers around fellowship and being involved with one another using the time and resources we have.
