We are a welcoming Vatican II Catholic community and a place where everyone is known by name. If you come for weekend Mass, you will be offered a nametag by one of our hospitality greeters. This has been a practice of this parish since our first Mass in 1990. We encourage everyone to wear nametags so that we are all able to be known by name. Make sure to talk to other parishioners who would be more than happy to tell you about our parish community.
If you see our pastor, Fr. Tim Wozniak, with his new puppy, Rocco, or Fr. Mike Erlander, our Weekend Associate, don't hesitate to approach them; they would love to personally welcome you !
To be a welcoming Catholic community where each is called:
* to celebrate God through vibrant worship
* to know God through humble service to others
* to seek God through lifelong faith formation
STB - Your spiritual home ... where each is called by name!
So what does it all mean ... ?
WHAT TO EXPECT
Don't worry about dressing too formal; we are a very relaxed community, and we are just happy to know you are visiting us.People who come to this parish are very accepting of all - we believe and mean what our mission states, that "All Are Welcome." This is a small parish of around 1600 households, and as all communities we have a variety of age groups, interests, and passions, but at the end of the day, we all are here to love each other and be what God has intended us to be.
The 5:00 pm Sunday Mass is very relaxed and a large number of the attendees are young people, who then stay for their Confirmation groups, which take place after this Mass.
Jeans, flip flops, dress pants, ties, dresses... we love it all.
GIVE US A TRY
Don't think about it twice; come visit us. We know how hard it is sometimes to walk into a new place, but please know that you will be welcomed the moment you enter our doors.
You can join Mass during the weekend or find a group to join. We have a Fun Families group, yoga devotion on Tuesday mornings, Bible study groups, an annual picnic in September, a parish golf tournament in September, faith formation programs for elementary and youth, and we have a preschool. You can be part of the Paint-a-Thon or Habitat for Humanity and learn some building skills. We have a group that knits prayer shawls and people who help out during difficult times like funerals. We are sure you can find something that fits you.
So stop waiting, and come over to see what it's all about!
