Welcome

Our congregation is friendly, welcoming, and diverse. We are African, Caribbean, Caucasian, African American, and Hispanic. We are young and old, married and single, gay and straight.  We are eager to welcome others into the parish community. Coffee Hour, a central part of our parish life that follows Sunday's High Mass, is often a full meal prepared by families of the parish. Other receptions for events like Concerts also reflect that parish's warm hospitality.
