As a Roman Catholics we believe and profess the Nicene Creed, and everything that the Church sets forth to be believed as divinely revealed or definitively proposes regarding teaching on faith and morals. You can read the online version of the Catechism of the Catholic Church here to understand the teachings of the Church.
Our mission as a Catholic Community is to help everyone grow together into the saints they are called to be. You are called to holiness. This doesn’t mean you are necessarily called to be in a monastery on your knees praying for the rest of your life. It means that you are called to become the person God created you to be! We all long to be better at loving, at being just, at being merciful. This is what the pursuit of holiness is all about. It also means that we do need God and the Church to challenge us in our beliefs, behaviors and attitudes. Saint Augustine once said:
If you believe what you like in the Gospel, and reject what you don't like, it is not the Gospel you believe, but yourself.
Don’t give up on holiness! God wants to transform you by his love.
