Who we are
W e are a multicultural, Catholic community in the heart of the City of Albany. Our community is committed to exercising our bold faith through pragmatic actions. We follow both a Jesus that lives and transforms the lives of others with unconditional love and unstoppable hope and a loving Father that calls us to do more for each other. Our church welcomes families from diverse cultures, languages, and ethnic backgrounds. We have been blessed with the opportunity to bring the word of God to English, Spanish and Filipino speakers. We are grateful that we are able to celebrate God’s love for us through many different cultures. One God, one Love, many expressions of the same love. We invite you to participate in this enlightening experience.
