We are a welcoming parish committed to doing Jesus’ work through our many ministries and outreach programs. We believe all are welcome in our church to join in worship and fellowship as either a member or a visitor. We host a weekly coffee hour after our 9:45 AM service to promote meeting the social needs of our parishioners, particularly those who may be limited in their ability to get out.
- Waning membership
- Identifying the needs of our community
As with many worshipping communities, our challenges emanate from a rapidly, ever-changing society in which we try to maintain some of our traditional views and practices. Waning membership plays the ultimate role in our challenges because it puts us out of touch with the here and now of today. Society places importance on many other activities that are not church related and the pressure to adhere to the rules of these activities is starving our faith community. That being said, we are feeling the crunch of numbers with finances and budget, especially with numbers going down and expenses going up. And, with those situations in place, it makes identifying the needs of our community difficult, at best, when the community is not present to share their needs.
As a parish, we try to meet the needs of all who come through our doors. We are proud to be a bilingual community and seek an individual who is able to serve both the Anglo and Hispanic communities in culture and tradition.
