Mary, Mother of Christ, Mother of the Church
501 Jesus is Mary's only son, but her spiritual motherhood extends to all men whom indeed he came to save: "The Son whom she brought forth is he whom God placed as the first-born among many brethren, that is, the faithful in whose generation and formation she co-operates with a mother's love." LG 63; cf. Jn 19:26-27; Rom 8:29; Rev 12:17. Catechism of the Catholic Church
Parish Mission Statement
Spread love everywhere you go: first of all in your own house. Give love to your children, your wife or husband, to a next door neighbor... Let no one ever come to you without leaving better or happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness; kindness in your face; kindness in your eyes; kindness in your smile; kindness in your warm greeting...
Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
We take these words as our own, as we strive to build and sustain our
spiritual home and follow the simple way to Christ.
