Parish Merger Update
The three names with the most votes for submission to the Archbishop are: Mary Queen of the Apostles, Our Lady of the Valley, and Saint Raphael the Archangel Note: Clarification on the designation of “Catholic Church” at the end of the name refer to the universal Catholic Church. This distinguishes us from other denominations such as locally St Paul Lutheran or St John UCC. In my letter to the Archbishop, I have asked him to discern if using “Catholic Parish” might be better suited to avoid confusion with the church building’s name of Sts. Peter and Paul Church.

The parish mission takes its origin from Jesus’ mission who was … to bring good news to the poor. …to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. (Luke 4: 18-19) Our parish has defined this for us in our “Mission Statement”: They devoted themselves to the teaching of the Apostles and to the communal life, to the breaking of the bread and the prayers. (Acts 2:42)
