“Go, make disciples.” (Matthew 28:19)

The command to go BEYOND yourself and your own limits, to let God transform the world through you as you bring his love out to your neighbor and to the world.

Love is such a powerful experience that when we fall in love, we can’t help but share it with the world! It is why we so joyfully celebrate weddings, birthdays, and life achievements together. Similarly, disciples of Christ find themselves called to tend to the spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of another in the name of Christ. We are not left on our own for this mission, God has equipped us for this desire to go BEYOND with the necessary talents, passions, and spiritual gifts. The parish is excited to accompany you in discovering your life’s purpose so that you may live your unique life out on a mission for the Lord and serve your brothers and sisters in his name.
