A Message from Father Kevin


Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Gratitude – it lays the foundation for our faith life at Our Lady of Grace. As we reflect on all that God has given us, and move ever closer to Jesus, we move forward on mission – because love impels us! (cf. 2 Corinthians 5:14).
Today, over 7,700 members call our parish home. Together, we are called to live lives of magnanimity, sharing with others from the substance of our lives and hearts. Wherever you are at in your faith journey, I welcome you and your family to ponder how you might serve within our parish community and share your gifts. 
If you have already completed and returned your Stewardship Commitment Card – thank you!  We are grateful for your response.
If you have not responded, I invite you to participate in our renewal by completing this online Stewardship Commitment Form. Your efforts in responding more fully enables us to continue the valuable ministry God calls us to do as a parish.

May God bless you,
Father Kevin Finnegan, Pastor
