We are a Eucharistic Community, a people diverse in background united together as Catholic Christians around the altar of the Lord. We are nurtured by the Sacraments and sustained by prayer. Our mission is to fulfill our Baptismal promises by proclaiming the message of the Gospel in our lives by our commitment to faithfully love and serve the Lord and one another.

We are in need of volunteers to assist us during Weekend Masses in our parish. There is a need for greeters to further assist our team in checking reservations and safely welcome people to Mass, seaters to help our ushers fill the church as efficiently as safely as possible within social distancing policies, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, cleaners to help sanitize the Church after Masses. This is crucial as we strive to maintain a clean environment for us all, clergy, staff, and parishioners alike, to safely attend our services and worship in our venerable church. Cleaning supplies (rags, gloves, masks, etc.) and other materials will be provided. If you are interested or have further questions, feel free to message us here on Facebook or contact the parish office by phone at 570-654-0053. Thank you!
