Logan County Catholic Community Mission

Our Mission as a Roman Catholic Community, is to grow in holiness and to live out the Gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ. We strive to accomplish this through lives strengthened by faith and nurtured by the Sacraments, most especially through Holy Eucharist. Empowered by The Eucharist, emboldened by The Holy Spirit, and guided by the teaching authority of the Church, we strive to be a Community of Faith, a place we call home.

Active Catholic Teens (ACT)
Active Catholic Teens, also known as ACT, is a program that helps teens learn to apply their Catholic faith to their daily lives and to grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Our secular-leaning world is constantly challenging, and even attacking, the morals and values that we identify as Christian. With this program, we hope to support our local teens in living out their faith and in developing into strong Christian leaders of the future.

Lord, to whom shall we go?  You   have the words of eternal life.  We have come to believe;  we are convinced that you are God's holy one.

     Be doers of the Word
and  not hearers only.

     Your ancestors ate and died nonetheless.  Those who feed on
the bread I give, shall live forever.

Lord, protect the good
 you have given us!
