A mission statement for a Catholic church cannot be more basic than this. Since the time I arrived at St. Paul's, I have noticed that this faith community takes living out this mission very seriously.
I believe that your arrival at this site, and your reading of this message, is not by accident. Therefore, on behalf of the Catholic Community of St. Paul's, located in Webster, New York, I offer a warm welcome.
As Jesus asked, the Community of St. Paul's exists to love and serve in Jesus' Name.
The spirit of our mission statement inspires our work and is at the heart of who we want to be. The symbol of four connected circles around a cross represents the four aspects of that statement
- Community: We come together to celebrate and live as one family in Christ.
- Ministry: We follow the teachings of Jesus by reaching out to help others in need.
- Education: We spread the Word of God to both children and adults.
- Worship: We gather together in worship to celebrate God’s presence in Word, Sacrament and each other.
A unique characteristic of our parish is the “spirit of St. Paul’s”:
- a sense of community and shared responsibility among its members,
- the decision to serve the poor in a variety of ways,
- an emphasis on the Church as the People of God, and
- a striving to include all members in various ministries.
Through active participation, St. Paul’s endeavors to:
- deepen and nourish faith and spirituality,
- worship together as a people of God,
- educate all of the community about Christ’s message,
- continue to and grow in fellowship,
- invite others to seek Christ,
- provide service to those in need.
