Parish Mission Statement

I call you friends, because I have made known to you everything I have learned from my Father.
You did not choose me, no, I chose you; and I commissioned you to go out and to bear my fruit, fruit that will last; and then the Father will give you anything you ask him in my name.
My command to you is to love one another." Gospel of St. John the Evangelist (15:15-17)

Inspired by these words in the Gospel of St John the Evangelist, Patron Saint of our Parish, we strive to follow Jesus by:

  • Building a community which gives expression to our faith in Jesus where each person feels welcomed, accepted and valued in their own right.

  • Promoting a greater sense of togetherness and participation as we gather in our Church.

  • Spreading this togetherness in church out into our Parish Community in a way that is inclusive
    and all-embracing.
