Vision of the Jesuit Parishes in the Jesuit West province:
To be a community of Jesuits and apostolic partners formed by the Gospel and the Spiritual Exercises to expand Jesus’ ministry of healing, reconciling and teaching in service of the diverse people in our ministries.
As a parish we invited our parishioners to experience the transformative power of God’s love through our weekly liturgies and our pastoral and social ministries.
Responding with intellectual rigor to the most challenging issues of our times.
Employing Ignatian discernment in decision-making.
Caring for the poor, the vulnerable and the earth, our common home.
Serving the Church with creativity and fidelity to the Jesuit tradition.
Bridging societal divides and fostering understanding among diverse people and cultures.
Collaborating regionally, through partnership and in networks, to serve the people of God.
