Our Beliefs
Every human person longs for the Infinite, the One who makes them, from the beginning unto eternity. The Father sent His Son, Jesus Christ, born of Mary, to teach us the path of belonging, through dying and rising. Our baptismal belonging leads us in the Spirit to encounter the presence of Jesus in all the circumstances and reality of life. Together, we are on a journey with a future full of hope.

In our Catholic Tradition, we belong to a local church under the leadership of our Bishop. As the Diocese of Winona-Rochester in Southern Minnesota, we are united with other parishes in our desire to follow Christ. The Spirit calls us to journey together through worship/sacraments, education/formation, administration/finance and service/outreach experiencing a new existence born in all who live the life of the Church.
