Mission statement

We are called by the Father to live God’s word and to grow in faith, hope, and love. As Catholics we proclaim the good news of Jesus. As a loving and caring community, we seek to strengthen our bonds with all Catholics and set an example for all brothers and sisters in Christ through prayerful action. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit we commit our talents and resources to provide for the spiritual and physical needs of our parish and the greater Chattanooga community. Calling on the Spirit to help us grow in our understanding of the work he entrusts to us, we pledge to be an active force in carrying out this mission.
