Mission and Values

Mission: Engaging in God's Service

Our Mission Statement tells the world who we are and why we exist. It guides our actions and resonates with the diversity inherent within Guardian Angels. Our mission inspires commitment, innovation and courage and calls us to continuously live the life of a disciple.

Parish Values

Our values include:

Gather frequently in prayer and worship. We experience God's presence at Mass, through the sacraments and through our daily lives. We joyfully lift our voices in prayer, in song and in community with one another. All are welcome and included.

Steward our resources with justice and serve those in need. We believe in the key principles of Catholic Social Teaching and recognize our responsibility as Christians to uphold the dignity and integrity of every person. We bear witness to God's love by generously sharing our time, talents and treasure with others.

Provide opportunities for lifelong learning and fellowship. We teach our faith to all ages. We seek wisdom to better understand and follow Christ's teachings...together.

Build on our heritage. Guardian Angels parish has a rich heritage as a vibrant faith community for nearly 160 years. Just as the earliest settlers paused at the well halfway between St. Paul and the river communities of Stillwater and Hudson to refresh themselves on their journey, Guardian Angels remains a welcoming, nourishing and empowering respite to all on their journey through life with God.
