St. Jerome, Forging a Path to God
St. Jerome, as a bright but worldly young man, had a dream that transformed his life: as he stood before the judgment seat of God and announced himself as a Christian, God accused him of having a greater commitment to secular learning than to the ways of holiness. Upon awakening, St. Jerome resolved to dedicate his life to the study and understanding of Sacred Scripture. With a similar tenacity and commitment to the service of God, the parish family of St. Jerome has transformed a tiny mission church into a beacon of faith for Catholics far beyond its parish boundaries. And, in a fashion strongly reminiscent of its namesake, St. Jerome Church perseveres in its quest to be a guiding light for generations to come.
