“The glory of God is man full alive.”
-St. Irenaeus

We aspire to a living faith – knowing who Jesus is, growing in our relationship with him, and leading others.

We invite you to know Jesus as a friend, saviour, and comforter.

“Life with Christ is a wonderful adventure.” – St. John Paul II

We also want to grow in our relationship with Jesus by responding to the great love Jesus has shown us.

As with any relationship, we respond to love by investing in that relationship. It’s the same with our relationship with Christ.

Getting to know Jesus isn’t the end. It is the beginning. It is the beginning of that great adventure.
