“Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every creature!” (Mark 16:15)

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

“The question, “Are you keeping the faith?” often comes up in ministry!  To which most would reply enthusiastically, “YES!”  However, some would rather answer, and challenge us with, “You’re supposed to be giving it away.” 


In our journey we have come to know Jesus and we’re growing in our faith with him. Now, it is time to lead others and help them come to know Jesus. It is time to give the faith away to everyone and anyone who’ll listen!”

We began as a mission.

We continue the mission.


Opportunities to Lead

 If you haven’t participted in Alpha yet, we encourage you to join us for Alpha and invite your friends, neighbours, and colleagues. If you have done Alpha consider volunteering as a table host or volunteer.

Alpha is how we encourage everyone to come to know Jesus and you play an important role in helping others know Jesus.

There are many other ways to lead in our parish. We’re always looking for Alpha volunteers, readers, ushers, sacramental preparation team members, technology team members, and much more.

The Sacraments

We want to know Jesus as our friend, our saviour, and our comforter. We want to know about him; we want to experience him!

One way we know Jesus is by encountering him in the sacraments.

We invite you to know Jesus and grow in your faith by celebrating the sacraments at St. Finnan's Parish.
