Mission Statement

 

Our Lady of Fatima Parish Mission Statement

 

 

We, the people of Our Lady of Fatima Parish, declare it to be our mission to live as a loving,  faith filled community with God as our Father and, through the power of the Holy Spirit, we give our living testimony and witness to the mission of his only begotten son, our Lord and SaviorJesus Christ.

 

We call upon Mary, the Mother of our Lord and our Mother, who by her humble fiat “let it be done to me according to thy will”, aided the beginning of the Church. May she now intercede with her Son for each of us and help us to grow in faith, hope, and love.

 

Though we are a community of many nationalities and cultures we are united, because we share in the one Body and Blood of Jesus.

 

As Catholic Christians, we are called to make visible Christ’s presence among all his people.  We commit ourselves to journey through life striving to become more like Jesus in our words and deeds and to be His disciples.  We live not for ourselves, but for the sake of others, giving new life and hope to those we meet.

 

We will become the heart of Jesus to love others. We will be His ears to listen, His mouth to teach, and His feet to spread His Good News as we journey through life.

 

As we proclaim our love by ministering to and serving others, we build up our community.  As one people, our parish family worships together; giving thanks and praise to God.
