WHAT is a Parish Mission?
A mission is a special time to nourish our spirit and our relationship with God. Our parish mission will consist of a three-evening series of inspirational talks. The theme of the mission will be "Exploring the Seven Sacraments."
WHY are we having a Parish Mission?
To renew our faith. To contribute to the spiritual life of our parish. To respond to God’s invitation to draw ever closer to Him. To grow in our appreciation of God’s marvelous love. To learn to be better instruments of God’s kingdom of love, justice, and peace in our troubled world.
