Dear Brothers & Sisters in Jesus Christ:

This church is holy ground, where all people are welcome to celebrate with joy the Gospel of life and the Sacraments empowering us with the Spirit of Christ.  From this Church the richness of our Catholic Faith, the history of our Maronite traditions, the experiences of our families and the diversity of our cultures, languages, and gifts strengthen and unite us as the Body of Christ.

Our resolve is strengthened by the example of our Patron Saint Anthony who spread the good news to all the people.  He reminds each of us of our mission to be messengers of hope, peace and good will.

From and in this Church we will educate, nurture, and encourage involvement among the children and youth to help them to grow in faith, compassion and understanding.  With the support and guidance of parents and elders we will strive to make a healing difference in the lives of all God’s people of every race, creed, and tradition.

Following the example of our Lord Jesus, the Lover of humankind, our Church will provide service to the poor and vulnerable, and reach out in action and loving care, both to individuals and communities through spiritual and corporal works of charity.

In God, we live and move and have our being, truly nothing is impossible for those who believe and trust in him.

Yours in Christ,

Fr. George Zina
