ST. SABINA'S MINISTRIES
St. Sabina Parish is first of all a community of stewardship -- people sharing their gifts with people. Through this sharing of our God given gifts, we grow in faith, love, and service to the Lord and each other. We welcome and cherish the opportunity to grow in the stewardship "way of life" with you.
