Building up the Body of Christ 

The Church is built of living stones, members of the Body of Christ. Our parish exists to build up the Body of Christ in our corner of the world. We strive to deepen our life in Christ, invite others to become disciples and reach out to those who are lost. Building fellowship together and worshiping God form the heart of our mission. We invite you to join us on the adventure of discipleship!
