Our mission is to provide sacramental services and education in a climate of openness and inclusiveness where all are welcome and empowered. Our community is one of equals, encountering and engaging the world in which we live through our words and works. We engage in just and charitable undertakings for the common good.
May today there be peace within.
May you trust in God
that you are exactly
where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts you have received,
and pass on the love that has been given you.
May you be content knowing that you are a child of God.
Let this presence settle into your bones,
and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love.
— St. Therese of Lisieux

Imagine; three of them.
as though survival
were a rat’s word,
and a rat’s death
waited there at the end
and I must have
in the century’s boneyard
heft of flesh and bone in my arms
I picked up the littlest
a boy, his face
breaded with rice (his sister calmly feeding him
as we climbed down)
In my arms fathered
in a moment’s grace, the messiah
of all my tears. I bore, reborn
a Hiroshima child from hell.
