St Mary's in the Community of Port Glasgow
Jesus said He had come that His followers might have life and have it more abundantly (Jn. 10:10); He also said His followers were to be light and salt and yeast in their communities and world (Mtt. 5:15,16). We believe this and express it in a variety of ways.
