Holy Name of Jesus - Saint Gregory the Great Parish




The Parish of the Holy Name of Jesus-St Gregory the Great is a vibrant urban ministry in the Roman Catholic Church within the Franciscan tradition. In our rich diversity of cultures and languages, we seek to be open to God's spirit so that we might grow in the faith that makes us one and give witness to the presence of Christ in our daily lives. As instruments of God's peace, we reach out to an welcome all people with a special concern for the poor, the alienated and the immigrant. We do this through worship, education and outreach in fulfilling our dream that all might be served in the spirit of St. Francis.
