– Dr. Chris Stravitsch, President

“Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, has called us to be “a Church that goes forth toward those who are ‘wounded’, who are in need of an attentive ear, understanding, forgiveness and love.” To help us fulfill this mission of healing, we work with Rejoice Parish Counseling to provide counseling services for our parish community. It is my heartfelt prayer that everyone who is wounded will receive Christ’s healing touch, so that we will join together in proclaiming the Gospel of Joy!”

– Fr. Pat Garrett, Pastor
