Celebrating God's Love

St. Mary Church Mary, Mother of Hope Parish is an alive and vibrant community celebrating God's love through doing the works of his Son. We are a Eucharistic community gathered around a table at which we are fed with the living word and the real presence of Christ in bread and wine. Nourished at this table, we set out to create family among ourselves and to reach out to bring to table any who want to be refreshed in the love that we have found here.

We are a community of imperfect people struggling to be perfected in Christ. A smiling face, an openness to others, attentiveness to the Word of God, a sense of his presence, and a hope for a deeper relationship with him is what we seek.

St. Vitus School

St. Vitus School At St. Vitus School, we believe that community is at the heart of Catholic education not as a concept to be taught, but as a reality to be lived.
