Fr. Drew has selected from the Book of Revelation, Chapter 21, "Behold, I make all things new," as the theme for his parish this year.
Since its founding three decades ago, St. Laurence has been a welcome harbor, striving to be a people centered in the love of Christ, living to glorify God in all we do. Here we find spiritual refreshment and renewal, numerous opportunities to learn & grow in our faith, and a variety of channels to serve others with gladness. We are abundantly blessed with a 17-acre campus which includes a beautiful church that seats 1,500 people for each Mass; a Chapel of Divine Mercy for perpetual adoration; the National Blue Ribbon award winning St. Laurence Catholic School for PreK-Grade 8; the Weekday Children’s Program, a sought-after early childhood education program; and the new Ave Maria Parish Life Center.
Today, we are a parish of over 7,200 families, committed to learning, growing, connecting and loving through 80+ ministries and parish groups.
On behalf of Fr. Drew Wood, Fr. Jaison Thomas, Fr. Simon Kipiti, our deacons and parish staff, we welcome you to St. Laurence and invite you to engage in the life of this vibrant Catholic community! There is something for everyone here – meaningful ways to serve, to pray, to worship, to learn and to grow in fellowship and friendship.
Starting in September 2016, we will focus together as a parish on specific ways to LEARN & GROW. So, make this fall the time you decide to try something new... Grow in knowledge & faith... Invite someone to go with you... Discuss what you learned with your family and friends... And share any ideas you may have.
