Time & Talent Extraordinaire!!
In celebration of our 40 years as a parish, we asked you to share your volunteer experiences with us. Our year festivities will culminate with our celebration of Our Lady of Guadalupe Mass and Dinner.

Our surrounding community is also blessed by all the hours you selflessly share with those in need – both individuals and organizations. The total for the hours you sent us is 7044.
