Welcome to St. Joan of Arc
Peace be to your family and all who enter the grounds of our parish! A warm Arizona welcome to your Catholic parish. The Lord delights in your response to His invitation to follow Him here at St. Joan of Arc parish. Our mission: courageously following Christ by serving the community through Catholic liturgy, gospel values, charity and education.
Our Catholic liturgy culminates with the offering of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the center of our whole Christian life and the font of all holiness. This highest form of worship provide perceptible signs that nourish and strengthen our faith to go out and be disciples of Jesus Christ through our life.
When gospel values are expressed in our vocations, then the community of believers become recognizable through the sharing of the faith and understand the true meaning of being a Catholic.
Through charity, we learn to love our neighbor and provide a place of encounter with the Risen Lord. Many diverse families of all ages come to this place with burdens and sorrows to lay before our Blessed Lord and experience a caring community.
Lastly, our religious education fosters growth and lifelong learning of the Catholic faith, which cannot be exhausted. We offer youth and adult formation to continue our journey of faith which started long ago.
Come and see how the Lord impacts lives at this parish. And if you have been away from the Catholic Church, come and pray in your home. My hope is that all who walk here encounter a deep and personal relationship with Our Lord Jesus Christ.
May the peace of Christ bless you,
Father Daniel Cruz
