Our Services

What are services like?
Well-planned and reverent Catholic Liturgy, with great homilies, great music, and great prayer

What is the community like?
We are a very large, suburban parish, with many professionals, as well as many blue-collar, hard-working families. We are very loyal to, and active in our parish elementary school: Our Lady's Christian School. We have created a wonderfully active and exciting youth ministry program. We are in a constant journey to continually re-vitalize our adult ministries
