We make Christ known by sharing how our relationship with Christ has transformed our life.

A disciple celebrates the Sacraments – especially the Eucharist.
LIVE OUR FAITH DAILY
A disciple continues to grow by learning how to demonstrate faith in daily life.
USE OUR GIFTS
A disciple gratefully acknowledges and uses gifts to bring joy and hope to others and to become who God created.
A disciple continues the mission of Jesus by serving others – especially the last, the lost, the least, and the lonely.
