Vision

We would like to see the parishioners more religiously renewed and socially involved in our parish. They must be made aware of their vocation as lay people who articipate meaningfully in all the developmental activities in all spheres (religious, liturgical, biblical, catechetical, social, educational, economical, vocational and interpersonal). We want our parish to develop as a community that loves, proclaims, celebrates and is committed to its mission.

Mission

We would help them to mature in their vocation as lay people. We will concentrate on correcting the youth who are victims of alcohol and drugs and initiate in them a process of purification and order.
