WHY SHOULD I REGISTER?


A Catholic parish is the most important part of our Catholic Church. This is where we continue the mission of Jesus Christ through evangelization to our members and the community. In our parish, we publicly express our faith, joining together with others to give proof of our communion with God and with one another. 

There are many reasons to register. The most important reason is that you desire a sense of belonging in your church community. You are making a commitment to practice your faith. This commitment should be a high priority in your life. You should be willing to give of your time, talent and treasure to your church community.
