We believe in Orthodox Christianity, as taught by the Roman Catholic Church. The Eucharistic celebration is the source and summit of our faith, which we seek to live and serve with the whole of our lives in vibrant and creative ways; in other words, we strive for a “dynamic Orthodoxy.” Excellence in our worship honors God.

Discipleship & Evangelization

We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God. Our preaching and messages aim to break open the relevance of the Bible for our daily lives. Changing and growing into the likeness of Christ is not just greater knowledge of our faith, but doing what God’s Word says. Discipleship ultimately means life-change.

Faith Formation & Evangelization

“The work of evangelization in the world of the military, requires a growing assumption of responsibility, so that, in military life as well, there be an ever new, convicted and joyful proclamation of Jesus Christ, the one hope for life and peace for all humanity.” – Pope Benedict XVI, address to Military Ordinaries, October 22, 2011



“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be.” Matthew 6:21

Giving Grows Our Character

Giving helps us to better reflect the character of God. He has given us everything — not even withholding his own Son! God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son.

“To Be a Christian Steward, A Summary of the U.S. Bishops’ Pastoral Letter on Stewardship, 1992”

Jesus’ disciples and Christian stewards recognize God as the origin of life, giver of freedom, and source of all things. We are grateful for the gifts we have received and are eager to use them to show our love for God and for one another. We look to the life and teaching of Jesus for guidance in living as Christian stewards…Stewards of God’s gifts are not passive beneficiaries. We cooperate with God in our own redemption and in the redemption of others.
Stewardship is a way of life that Jesus taught to his followers by his words and example. As my bishop so eloquently articulated in his letter to me that I shared with the community, “It acknowledges that we do not own anything. Everything – who we are, what we have, and what we can do – is on loan from God. All is entrusted by God to us for our management or administration.” We are reminded of the need to be grateful to God! Why? Because we are trusted to serve as caretakers. And we manage God’s property according to God’s good pleasure: To provide for ourselves and our dependents what is needed to live in human dignity. We are also called to share with the Church for its mission, and with people who cannot provide for or protect themselves. We look to the life and teaching of Jesus for guidance in living as Christian stewards. As a community we seek a more deliberate attempt to be sensitive to our need to share, and to people that need our help, ready to share time, talent, and money with Church and charity. We need to cultivate a culture of stewardship, especially in our young – we need to look for opportunities to engage our children in acts of stewardship by serving the poor, giving alms, and sharing their gifts for the good of the Church.
