"Where We Bear Christ in our Lives"

ABOUT US

ABOUT US

Upon this Rock, I will build my church (Mt. 16:18) is the foundational biblical text of the Roman Catholic Church on the institution of Papacy, the supreme jurisdiction and ministry of the pope as shepherd of the whole Church. As successor of Peter, and therefore Bishop of Rome and Vicar of Christ, the pope is the perpetual and visible principle of unity in faith and communion in the Church. - CCC 882


FROM THE PASTOR

In behalf of St. Christopher Church, a small yet diverse Catholic Parish in Marana, Arizona, I am pleased to extend my warmest greetings of welcome. This website is deeply inspired by the ever-growing need to spread the Gospel, promote the Catholic Tradition, provide information and share resources. It is a family album that essentially features the life of St. Christopher community and enormously brings together the memories of the past, the joys and struggles of the present and the enduring dreams and hopes for the future.

Fr. Jojo
