Our mission is to build the Kingdom of God with the help of the power of Almighty God, the love of Jesus Christ and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. Our mission is best accomplished through excellence and fidelity in the worship, Christian Education, Pastoral Care, Evangelism, Administration and Community Outreach.
We serve 900+ members, reflecting the rich diversity of the Hispanics. We offer one service on Wednesday and three services on Sunday with a monthly healing service. Christian Education is at 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m., and a Youth Program is at 8:45a.m. Our own leadership development through workshops and training during the year has helped us to grow and serve a Christian community with just one priest. The Christian Education and Music program and the Daughters of the King chapter are assets to our growth. We have maintained our worship attendance and increased in pledges. We are serving the community through Epiphany Community Health Outreach Services (ECHOS) and The Metropolitan Organization(TMO), an organization of institutions dedicated to developing power and leadership among citizens who are usually excluded from major decisions that affect their lives.
Santa Maria Virgen is now well known in our community through the social services that we offer in cooperation with ECHOS and the participation in the different activities and workshops through TMO. Our Church is the center for meetings and activities with the Alief Neighborhood for Healthcare, Housing, Public Safety, Education Workforce and Immigration. We support a humane immigration reform. Our church has been advertised through the Hispanic TV networks.
