Comments

This parish has been an important and stable part of the Milford area since 1901.  It has weathered many storms and times of division yet it has held together with an authentic spirit of care within the core membership that has overcome all obstacles.  The parish has now embarked on a building rehab program in the hopes of being a safe and accessible place for whatever the Spirit has in store for our future.  We are hoping to partner with a priest who wants to invest in the life and wellbeing of this community as we seek and serve all people respecting the dignity of all in the name of Jesus, our Lord.
