As Catholics we strive to live the Sacramental Life as proscribed by our Lord, Jesus Christ in unity with His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. The source and summit of our Faith is the Eucharist offered during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. But, our parish graced with many opportunities to express our love of God and all peoples. Infant Jesus offers the following opportunities for strengthening and growing our faith, for better understanding our faith, for prayer and worship, for spiritual growth and more.

Defining our Catholic Christian Faith begins with concepts of mystery. Not mystery in the sense of a detective novel, but in the sense of concepts that infinite in nature and therefore infinitely difficult to fully understand. But, as reasonable and rational beings, graced with God's divine revelations, we can begin to understand these mysteries and with prayer, meditation and study come to greater and greater depths of understanding of God, life, the universe and ourselves.
