Welcome to Santa Sophia! We are a Roman Catholic faith community dedicated to serving God and His beloved people.

I invite you to visit us anytime to participate in Holy Mass and our parish activities. Spend time in silent prayer before the Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Receive God’s mercy in the sacrament of reconciliation.

Please register if you are not yet a registered member of the parish and experience first-hand the richness of the faith and community to be found at Santa Sophia Parish.

I want to publicly thank Fr. Devdas and the parish staff for their wonderful support shown to me even before I started at the parish. They have made these first days of transition into the parish much easier.
