Mission Statement

As the Roman Catholic Community of Saint Mary’s we are responsible for sharing our faith with the children and youth of our parish family and must do so with commitment, knowledge and enthusiasm.  We are called in our relationship with God, in light of the sacred scriptures, to ongoing comprehensive Christian Formation; knowledge of the faith, liturgical formation, moral formation, learning how to pray, education for community life, participation in social justice and missionary initiation.  Let us take seriously our responsibility to be faithful disciples of Jesus and give witness to the Gospel message of compassion, love, forgiveness and peace.  In keeping our focus on the Eucharist, our purpose is to develop, strengthen, and encourage the spiritual and educational formation--the heart and mind--of all our children and youth as we continue on our faith journey.
