Mission Statement  
We, the people of St. Francis/St. Lawrence Parish, called through Baptism and rooted in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, commit ourselves to grow in faith, to build community, and to reflect the Light of Christ in our society. 
We will love God and love our neighbour. 
We will do this by participating fully and actively with one another in prayer and liturgy. 
We will ensure a warm, welcoming environment where all are loved, valued, and appreciated. 
We will be witnesses to God’s indwelling Spirit in our daily lives. 
We will serve all people who are in need, strive to bring about justice, defend human dignity, and promote peace. 
We will educate ourselves in the Scriptures, the Tradition, and the teaching of the Catholic Church. 
We will constantly challenge ourselves and each other to see Christ within and among us. 
We will be open to dialogue and celebration with people of all faiths. 
We will work toward solidarity with our brothers and sisters throughout the world. 
We recognize that our parish mission is the responsibility of the entire community and encourage all members to take personal responsibility in answering that call.
