We, the Parish of St. Athanasius, are a faith-filled worshiping Roman Catholic community, where Jesus Christ is recognized as Lord and Savior in our journey and made present through our joyful celebration of the sacraments, our proclamation and living of the gospel, and our loving outreach and service, especially to those in most need. We acknowledge the need for God's grace in our unfinished lives.

We acknowledge our incompleteness and pledge our faith lives to work for the creation of a community where the equality of God's people that flows from Baptism is celebrated with hope and passion. We pledge our commitment to the creation of a community where seekers and questioners are welcomed, where the forgotten and marginalized are recognized, where God's people are refreshed, reconciled and renewed.
