Welcome to St. Maria Goretti Roman Catholic Church! Our goal is to provide you with a wonderful place to give thanks and praise to God as you experience the saving action of Jesus Christ and the sanctifying grace of the Holy Spirit.
Our parish is made up of great people who embrace the stewardship way of life and seek to see the face of Christ in one another as we welcome all who join our parish community for a day or for a lifetime.
Centered on prayer and worship, especially of the Holy Eucharist, we seek holiness, peace and great joy. We strive to spread God’s message through service by attending to the spiritual and physical needs of our parishioners as well as the surrounding and global community.
Please join us with your God given gifts and share them with others. We have resources, programs and ministries for family members of all ages and look forward to walking with you on your life long journey of Faith.
God bless you,
Rev. John C. Nguyen, Pastor
