PARISH PASTORAL GUIDELINES.  The Mission of St. Bede Catholic Church:  St. Bede exists to form and lead its Catholic faithful into a deep life-giving communion with the Heart of Jesus Christ. The heart and pulse of the community is synonymous with that of the Lord Himself, who lives within our hearts and remains present to us Eucharistically. Every act of faith, hope and love flows from our Eucharistic Worship. It is the Eucharist that is the source and summit of who we are, the People of God. As a family of faith we embrace all men and women of good will who long to hear the voice of the Word made flesh and desire to know Him more perfectly, follow Him faithfully and serve Him with selfless love. .............. read more
