Our Mission: Believing with Faith, Welcoming   with Love, Serving with Christ.

Reflecting the Face of Mercy: All the Catholic faithful invite and encourage you to join in our outreach for healing . Particularly those three groups of our family of faith that feel distanced from Christ and his Church:       1) separated, divorced and remarried Catholics, 2) those involved in or affected by abortions, 3) individuals and families impacted by same-sex attraction. We welcome you back to your spiritual home.
