Dear friends,

FrJohn -1I am happy to welcome you to the website of St. Lawrence Catholic Church in Lawrenceville, GA.  Our Parish was established as such in 1974, but until that time had been a presence forming in the area since 1963 as the first Catholic mission in Gwinnett County.

Our simple Mission Statement captures what we strive for as a Roman Catholic parish of the Archdiocese of Atlanta: We, the worshiping community of St. Lawrence, rooted in the Gospel, rich in our faith traditions, and joyful in celebrating the Sacraments, seek to make known God’s love in today’s world by faithfully serving one another, reaching out to others, and embracing all with welcome.

As human persons, like you, we are constantly evolving; and as followers of Jesus we are ever deepening our Christian Discipleship. Being a diverse parish community, a beautiful reflection of the Universal Church within God’s creation, we do this best united with each other, and with each other united to the Lord!

I invite you to explore your faith with us. You can learn a lot about us from this website.  But too, I wholeheartedly invite you to simply come and worship with us sometime soon; or if first you prefer, contact us.  Either way, I think you’ll see why we proclaim: “All are welcome here!”

Fr. John Howren

Pastor
