Stories of hope

We are a welcoming community called to be an enduring beacon of faith, hope, and love

During these difficult times it's uplifting to hear stories about parishioners taking action to improve the lives of people in this community, this nation, and the world. 

Every week we'd like to highlight these stories here.  If you have a story you'd like to share, please email Andy, Kelly, or Casie

Because everyone likes to hear a good story...
