The Hawthorn Catholic Parish strives to be a Christian Community focused on Jesus, helping all celebrate God’s presence and expressing our faith through outreach, service and justice.

We express our vision through prayerful liturgies, welcoming hospitality, ministering to young families, the youth, the elderly and the homeless and refugees in our area. Our parish groups are centered on those needs of our community.
