Liturgical Mission Statement

Catholic liturgy is a celebration that transforms diverse people into a community of faith by uniting them with one another, and with Christ, through sacrament, story, song and service, and helps lead each person to a deeper lived experience of God, the ways that God is present there, and how they can respond to that presence.
