Our Pastor:
For many years our parish was served by visiting priests. In 1997 Father Tim Clancy S.J. came to say mass and graciously accepted an invitation to remain as our pastor. He is still active as Professor of Religious Philosoply and head of the Honors Program at Gonzaga University. Father Tim's homilies are models for the Church's vision that homilies should be well-informed teachings on the meaning of the Gospels. Transcripts of his archived homilies are still well read.

Our Mission:
Our purpose is to celebrate a common faith in Jesus Christ, to stirve for unity, to seek reconciliation and to serve our fellow men and women. As full and active members of the Body of Christ, we live our lives in the freedom of the Gospel under the sign of the Cross, bearing witness in the wider world and within our own families. We draw nourishment from the sacramental life of the Church, especially through the weekly celebration of the Eucharist. With the grace of God we pray to discern the voice of the Spirit and acknowledge the face of Christ in all we meet.
