Our Mission

Saint Lawrence O’Toole Church is a parish with a great diversity that welcomes everyone to experience Jesus in His Word, in the Sacraments of the Church and in each other.

In recent years Saint Lawrence O’Toole Church has transformed significantly due to the demographic change in the city. Our parish has become the center of spiritual and social acceptance for new emerging communities.

Today Saint Lawrence O’Toole Church is composed of four different communities, Anglo, Hispanic, Vietnamese and Brazilian. Our pastoral ministry is offered in four different languages: English, Spanish, Vietnamese and Portuguese. This diversity gives us the opportunity of having wonderful multicultural celebrations.

The richness of our own cultures and traditions is expressed with joy in the pastoral life of the parish. Each of our communities is committed to fostering an atmosphere of acceptance and charity where everyone can discern his or her mission according to the calling of God to be his disciples in our changing world.

We are a parish that strives to form committed, active disciples of Jesus Christ. Our mission is focused on continual growth in holiness through personal prayer, Eucharistic Adoration, Christian service and worship. I encourage you to be part of Saint Lawrence O’Toole Church. We strive to make faith relevant, meaningful and life-giving. Welcome.
