My Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,

In presenting our webpage to you, I wish to take this opportunity to thank all our parishioners who have lived here and have supported our parish family.  Even if you think you know all about our ministries and organizations, this website will  be a reference guide for you, and give you names and phone numbers of our leaders.

It is also an excellent way to welcome our new parishioners and acquaint you with our many services, and the ways you may serve our brothers and sisters.  Even though we are large and diverse, we want to strive to be a family who extend our arms to embrace new members as sisters and brothers.

Certainly, information is one important purpose of the webpage.  Giving you as much information as we can about our parish every week is important.  But I also hope that this web page inspire you to become an active member in our community.  There are so many opportunities for you to serve.

Father Jaime Hernández
