As a people formed in the Roman Catholic tradition, called together by Christ, we seek to grow in faith, hope and love. We gather to be fed and healed by Word and Sacrament, which strengthens us to build Christ's Kingdom on earth and sustains us on our pilgrim way to heaven. Through our call to evangelize we invite all to join us on our journey of faith as we serve, teach, proclaim and give witness to the Gospel of Jesus. In the words of our patroness, St. Julie Billiart, "May Jesus live in all our hearts."
