STA Highlights



Advent is a time of preparation.  Even our secular culture knows this.  Just look at the crowds in the stores this time of year!  And they’re all there preparing for Christmas.  Sometimes you and I can be critical of what we see as the commercialization of Christmas, but at least everyone’s instinct is correct – something big is coming, and I need to prepare for it!

That’s the purpose of Advent.  This season of Advent, that goes largely unnoticed by our secular culture, is the Church’s way of preparing for the true meaning of Christmas – the coming of Jesus!  Advent also points us to his second coming, when He will return in glory at the end of time (which, for most people, will be at the end of our lives).  So, Advent is the Church’s way of saying – something big is coming, and we need to prepare for it!

Dear parishioners and visitors,

Welcome to our website.  I hope all of you will take a few minutes to visit the various pages and learn more about our wonderful parish.

Our mission statement is “Learning, Living and Sharing the Good News of the Gospel Message”.  We hope this is evident in all the various opportunities we provide for learning about our faith, living our faith through volunteering with one or more of our many outreach ministries, and sharing our faith with our family, friends and co-workers.

Please know that we are here to help you grow in your faith and welcome your questions and suggestions.

In His love,

Fr. Eric
