Fr. Eduino T. Silveira


Father Eduino Silveira is happy that we have a very generous parish and community eager to serve the Lord and grow in faith and communion. He sees his ministry as listening, empowering, and encouraging the parishioners to be disciples of Jesus Christ. His goal is that we all may come to know how much God loves us and live in that love. He is excited that so many people are interested in expressing their faith in love for God and one another. He wants to help our parish family be a loving and welcoming community for all.
