Strengths

We are a dedicated parish with a core of hard working, faithful parishioners. We are a parish with a substantial financial endowment and a sizable campus with a renovated rectory on site.  Established in 1797, we have a long history in the community.  Our parishioners are generous regarding outreach and are supportive of each other and are faithful participants and share our gifts with the community.

Challenges

We find that our strengths and challenges are often one in the same.  While our endowment supplements our pledged offerings, it tends to inhibit financial contributions from members of the parish. The time and effort required to maintain our beautiful campus can at times be a burden to the dedicated core of parishioners that are able to lend a hand.  We are blessed with abundant resources and are open to the Holy Spirit to enlighten us as to how God needs us to use them.
