Mission Statement

Our Parish Family is called to grow in faith and love. We desire to be in union with Jesus Christ and one another. We will accomplish this mission through worship and prayer, education, and evangelization in our community and world. With St. Maria Goretti as our patron, we strive to follow her life of forgiveness and holiness.

May we pursue this mission faithfully, encouraging others to join us in discipleship for the Lord.
