Mission and Stewardship
‘Be hospitable to one another without complaining. As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.’ 1 Peter 4:9-10
Connecting all people with the Word of God in Jesus Christ has been a hallmark of Saint Bede Catholic Church since the founding of our parish in the early 1900’s. We have grown from a Catholic College Chapel in 1932, to a thriving community of thousands of disciples who form disciples in order to grow together in Word, Worship, Community, Service, and Evangelization. Read more about our parish history here.
Discipleship gives meaning to our lives. Our discipleship is brought to life through the celebration of the Eucharist, prayer, and by service to others. Saint Bede is blessed with parishioners who with their time, talent, and treasure generously support the ministries that touch thousands of lives.
