Pastor's Message

Welcome to St. Brendan the Navigator Catholic Church.

One of the most important parts of the Universal Church is the parish. The reason is because the parish impacts people's lives. It is in this setting that personal faith finds community support. Here, together we receive the Body and Blood of Christ and listen to the Word of God proclaimed. Here, sins are forgiven in Reconciliation. Here, in the company of others, life's most significant passages take on eternal dimension: the birth of a child in Baptism, the beginnings of adulthood in Confirmation, the love of a man and a woman in Marriage, the passing of a loved one in Christian Burial.

The parish is a living, breathing entity because in it God interacts with His people. It is a mystery because people themselves are transformed into what they would not otherwise be: Christ's Mystical Body -- His hands and feet, His eyes and mouth, His ambassadors to this time and place.

A parish is also a family and like any family, functions most efficiently when all its members involve themselves in its life. I encourage you to consider joining one of the many ministries.

We welcome you to our web site!

Yours in Christ:

Fr. Tom

Reverend Thomas G. Barrett
