That all who join Ste. Marie Parish may come to know Jesus Christ, to accept Him as their Lord and Savior, and to be His Light in the world, proclaiming the Good News in word and deed.
Mission of Ste. Marie Parish
Under the leadership of the faith-filled Monsignor Hevey, Ste. Marie Parish became a Beacon of Light which brought dignity and hope to French Canadian Catholic immigrants. Today, in the midst of a disintegrating society marked by alienation, loneliness and despair, we feel a particular urgency to rekindle and magnify the power of that Beacon; for only the Light of Christ can overcome the darkness of this present age and only His Love can bring us fullness of life. As we continue our journey with God, we will keep our eyes on the cross of Christ, our ears attentive to His Word, and our hearts docile to His Spirit. In that same Spirit we offer what follows as a means through which God's plan for our community is fulfilled.
