What is a Mission?

A Parish Mission is a parish awakening! A time for the whole parish to come together to reflect upon God’s word, to renew our faith, and to pray with open hearts. All are welcome to participate—long-time, new, becoming, off-and-on, former Catholics, and those of no faith. The Mission will include proclamation of the Word of God, preaching, reflection, song, and prayer. It will be an opportunity to experience the wonderful and incredible presence and love of God.

The Mission is for everyone, especially you and your family. Mark your calendars and plan now to participate.
