Our Lady of Guadalupe...

"I am the ever-virgin Mary, Mother of the true God who gives life and maintains its existence. He creates all things. He is in all places. He is the God of Heaven and Earth.
I desire a church in this place where your people may experience my compassion.
All those who sincerely ask my help in their work and in their sorrows will know my Mother's Heart in this place. Here I will see their tears; I will console them and they will be at peace. Call me and call my image Santa Maria de Guadalupe."

OLG Parish Pastoral Council

the heart and hands of our lady


OUR VISION - That our Lady of Guadalupe Church grows into an open fellowship of people united in faith and caring for each other; where we actively participate in worship and passionately serve both church and community.

OUR MISSION - We, the congregation of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, rooted in a caring community, are guided by the Holy Spirit to live and grow in love and compassion. By extending the heart and hands of Our Lady in our daily lives, we joyfully commit ourselves to proclaim the Gospel, celebrate our faith and acknowledge our diversity as God’s precious gift. We pledge to serve the needs and concerns of everyone and will strive to build God’s kingdom of love, justice and peace though worship, evangelization and service.

In October 2011, the Diocese of Santa Rosa initiated a Diocesan Pastoral Planning. Our Pastor at the time, Father Angelito Peires, asked Our Lady of Guadalupe Pastoral Council and other parishioners to participate in the Planning and develop a Parish strategy and vision.
Our Parish Pastoral Plan was developed using Our Lady of Guadalupe’s Vision and Mission as its guide. Our Vision succinctly describes the parish as we wish to be known. Our Mission defines what we have set out to do together.
This plan is made up of Goals, Objectives and Component Items, which all work in partnership to realize our Parish Vision. Similarly, accomplishing the Goals and Objectives in the Plan will allow us to reach our desired Outcomes. We also included Components, which convey ideas taken directly from a survey of parishioners on how to accomplish the Objectives.
While these Components are a not an exhaustive list, they are Components that our parishioners feel passionately about. The Pastoral Plan will serve as the basis for guiding the activities and initiatives of the parish and will be updated on a periodic basis by the Parish Pastoral Council.
