SAINT LAWRENCE THE MARTYR PARISH

THE PARISH'S VALUES
Go to DISCIPLESHIP

DISCIPLESHIP

At the end of his earthly journey Jesus said to his followers, “Go and make disciples!” We welcome the great commission of Christ and strive to grow as his disciples as we reach out to those who are searching for their spiritual home. We promote active participation in the life of our faith community.

Go to COMMUNITY BUILDING

COMMUNITY BUILDING

Through our Baptism we are welcomed into the community of faith, the Church. We believe that a warm welcoming attitude is a first step to building fellowship and meaningful relationships within our community. We strive to treat every person with respect and care, as brothers and sisters in Christ.

Go to NEXT GENERATION

NEXT GENERATION

Our children and youth have an important part in the life of our community. We value Catholic education. Therefore, we commit to good and faithful cooperation with the Catholic Schools of our parish. We strive to offer our young people a life-giving experience of the living Church, forming them as disciples of Jesus Christ.

Go to SUNDAY MASS

SUNDAY MASS

Eucharistic celebration is the source and summit of our lives. “The Eucharist, although it is the fullness of sacramental life, is not a prize for the perfect but a powerful medicine and nourishment for the weak.” (Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium)
