Our MIssion

We, the people of Mary of the Visitation parish,

are a Catholic community

bound together by the Word of God,

sacramental worship,

and the call to service



Our Motto

"See Christ In Others;

        Be Christ For Others!”

Our Vision

Through the proclamation of the Word of God

and embraced by the gifts of the Holy Spirit,

we seek to be welcoming,

to grow spiritually,

to see Christ’s presence in others,

and to offer our care and service to all.
