"Christian revelation…promotes deeper understanding of the laws of social living. The Church receives from the Gospel the full revelation of the truth about man. When she fulfills her mission of proclaiming the Gospel, she bears witness to man, in the name of Christ, to his dignity and his vocation to the communion of persons. She teaches him the demands of justice and peace in conformity with divine wisdom" (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2419).
The Lord Jesus teaches us, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself" (Matthew 22:37-40). As St. Mary's Church becomes a more vital center of the New Evangelization and a herald of the New Catholic Reformation, we invite each person in the parish to discern how it is that God is calling them to love their neighbors.
Listed below are several apostolates in which we are actively engaged. Every Catholic Christian is called to find ways to champion the dignity of the human person, promote the common good, and meet the needs of the poor. Please share with us as we seek to give of ourselves, our time, and our possessions to those in need as faithful disciples of Jesus Christ.
