Our Mission & Vision
The mission of our parish community is to love God, to love others, and to glorify the name of God through our prayer, celebration of the Eucharist and sacraments. Our Vision is to build up the Kingdom of God among us and make the disciples of Jesus Christ – our Lord and Saviour.
Our pastoral team recognizes the authority of God and of the Church, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Church. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the Kingdom of God until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
