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)
