Welcome to St. John Paul the Great Parish
Dear friends in Christ,
Greetings and welcome to our parish, whether you are joining us in person or connecting from afar. With immense joy and heartfelt warmth, I welcome you to our faith community at St. John Paul the Great Parish.
Our parish stands as a beacon of hope and light for all of God's children. We firmly believe that everyone has a place here with us, no matter where they come from, who they are, or what their story may be. This is not just a building or an institution. This is a house of prayer for everyone, and you are not just a visitor but a cherished member of God's family.
Our mission statement beautifully encapsulates the essence of who we are: “We are a Catholic community united by faith in God, nourished by Jesus through the Word and the Eucharist, and empowered by the Holy Spirit to meet the spiritual and physical needs of our parish family and community through prayer, faith formation, stewardship, fellowship, and outreach.”
In practical terms, this means that we strive each day to deepen our relationship with the Lord, grow in our understanding of our faith, and reach out in love and service to our immediate parish family and the wider community. Whether it's through our liturgies, faith formation classes, or social outreach initiatives, we aim to live out the Gospel values in tangible ways.
If you are searching, seeking, or questioning, know you are not alone. We are here to accompany you on this spiritual journey, to offer guidance, and to provide a loving community where you can grow in faith and love.
Lastly, if there is any way we can assist or be of service to you, please do not hesitate to reach out. Our doors and our hearts are always open.
May God's abundant blessings be upon you, and may the intercession of St. John Paul the Great guide and protect you always.
In Christ's love,
Pastor, St. John Paul the Great Parish
