Our Mission
As a people, we are called Christ to become a caring and compassionate family. This family is challenged to extend Christ’s love and embrace to all who come to Him in Faith, Hope and Love. As a family, we freely and joyfully gather for prayer and worship. We journey together on the spiritual journey of growing in knowledge and love of Christ Jesus and of what it means to be His disciples.

Pope Francis

is the 266th and current Pope of the Roman Catholic Church who chose Francis as his papal name in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi.

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, he was ordained a Catholic priest in 1969, and from 1973 to 1979 was Argentina's provincial superior of the Society of Jesus. He became the Archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1998, and was created a cardinal in 2001 by Pope John Paul II. He led the Argentine Church during the December 2001 riots in Argentina, and the administrations of Néstor Kirchner and Cristina Fernández de Kirchner considered him a political rival. Following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI on 28 February 2013, a papal conclave elected Bergoglio as his successor on 13 March.
