Welcome to the St. Gregory the Great Parish web site. Our parish was founded in 1957. Since that time we have grown in many ways. Our parish is now comprised of three thousand families. Our ministries extend to people of all ages and needs, reflecting the image of Jesus, who came not to be served but to serve.  You are cordially invited to join us in our Celebration of Eucharist each day and on the weekends.
Please click the “Our Mission” tab for our parish mission statement, which expresses what we, as a Catholic, Christian Community strive to be.
