Mission Statement for our Parish Cluster

 We the Parishioners of St. Paschal Baylon, St. Catherine of Siena and Good Shepard visualize ourselves as disciples of Jesus Christ,  Savior of the World, to bring together our communities, to help our Parishioners grow in faith and to spread the Gospel of life through education and good works. 

We come together to share God's word in scripture, at Mass, in homilies and in prayer, charity and service. We also come together to receive Jesus in the Holy Eucharist.

Empowered by the Holy Spirit, we put love into action by caring for the needs of the sick, the poor and the alienated. We commit oursleves to developing and nurturing faith formation among all Parishioners through common worship, education, service and fellowship.

We express our faith by good examples, by love and concern for all God's people through prayer, charity and service each and every moment of our lives.
