We try our best to make sure that everyone who walks onto our campus feels they have come to a place which affirms, welcomes and engages.
Above all, we are a community of love in Jesus Christ, rooted in discipleship. Our Parish Mission is: Empowered by God’s Holy Spirit, we proclaim to all the Good News of Jesus through word, worship, witness, community and service. Our Parish Vision is: Praising God and serving His people. We continually strive to respond to the ever changing needs of the People of God, to help each person grow in faith and to reach out to those in need.
Welcome Back Catholics
If for any reason you have found yourself apart from God and your Church, know that God longs to welcome you back! Many inactive Catholics, for a variety of reasons, have left the Church, but are discovering a place of forgiveness and renewed peace as the Holy Spirit gently draws them. We at HNJ would like to provide you with the opportunity to explore your feelings among those who, like you, have stepped away.
