O Lord, who hast mercy upon all,
take away from me my sins,
and mercifully kindle in me
the fire of thy Holy Spirit.
Take away from me the heart of stone,
and give me a heart of flesh,
a heart to love and adore Thee,
a heart to delight in Thee,
to follow and enjoy Thee, for Christ's sake, Amen
--St. Ambrose of Milan (AD 339-397)
Church of the Little Flower Mission Statement
Our mission guided by the Holy Spirit is to
- unite in our common faith, through celebration of the Word and Eucharist;
- form a caring, loving and prayer-filled community, strengthened by the sacraments, that reflects the presence of Jesus;
- bring Jesus' Presence to all, especially the poor of our world;
- recognize and affirm the gifts, talents and needs of others.
We journey together imitating the example of our patroness, St. Therese the Little Flower, in doing little things centered in the love of God and one another. We endeavor to make our parish a faith-filled community, a place to meet friends, and a place we call home.
