Dear Parishioners and Prospective Parishioners,
Welcome to our parish website. We hope the information on these pages is helpful to you in finding your place at St. Joan of Arc and that your spiritual needs may be fulfilled. Our parish is very active in many ways both spiritual and material. As well as having opportunities for spiritual growth for all ages, we also encourage the participation of the whole family in worship and growth. Our parish is deeply involved in the practice of Stewardship. This means that we believe that all our time, talents and treasures are truly gifts from God and are given to us to be shared to build up God's Kingdom here on earth. So, if you are interested in a parish where people are involved, you have come to the right place. We heartily welcome you and hope that if there is anything we can do for you that you will not hesitate to call.

Are you good at making people feel welcome? When you meet someone new, a new neighbor, a new work colleague, a new parishioner, do you make them feel at home? Many of us can probably do a much better job at this. When we make people feel welcome, we make them feel like they are included instead of being excluded. A simple “hello” and a smile goes a long way.

SUPPORT FOR THE HOLY LAND
Pope Francis has asked our parish to support the Christians in the Holy Land. Your support helps the church minister in parishes, provide Catholic Schools and offer religious education. Your support also helps to preserve the sacred shrines. The wars, unrest and instability have been especially hard on Christians. In these times of crisis, our support provides humanitarian aid to refugees. When you contribute, you become an instrument of peace and join with Catholics around the world in solidarity with the Church in the Holy Land.
PLEASE BE GENEROUS!
