OUR MISSION: We the parishioners of the Kula Roman Catholic Community, following our baptismal commitment and vocation as disciples of Jesus Christ, shall:

  • Develop a personal and communal relationship with Almighty God, the Father, through Christ, the Son, guided and empowered by the Holy Spirit.
  • Worship God wholeheartedly in the Liturgy and the Sacraments.
  • Listen attentively to Him as He speaks to us daily in order to discern and carry out His will as did Jesus, Mary, and the Saints.
  • Cooperate with all Christians to spread the Good News of Salvation by actively seeking opportunities to educate and form ourselves and others in the faith, by sharing our belief, our charisms, and our resources.
  • Recognize that salvation cannot be attained in isolation and we shall create a Christian community by providing ample opportunities for people to bond socially and spiritually.
  • Respect, appreciate, and support every human being, especially those in greatest need.
  • Encourage participation through hospitality, collaboration, and the celebration of our cultural diversity and traditions.

To this end we dedicate the use of our unique gifts of time, talent, and treasure.
