We are the Roman Catholic Community of St. Isidore the Farmer, Eucharistic people empowered by the Holy Spirit, planting seeds of faith, cultivating growth, and sharing the harvest of the kingdom with all of God’s people.
A parish where all are welcome, all are invested, and all are disciples building the Kingdom of God through the generous sharing of time, talent, and treasure.
St. Isidore was a farm hand. He was born near Madrid, Spain in 1070. He attended mass every morning at a Madrid church before he set out for work as a farm laborer. According to legend, his employer complained that Isidore’s mass attendance was taking up too much plowing time. He was then surprised to see an angel doing the work while Isidore was at mass. At another time, an angel on either side of Isidore tripled his plowing. Isidore and his wife vowed celibacy in gratitude for a miracle which saved their son from drowning in a well. They were known for their holiness and care of the poor. St. Isidore died May 15, 1130. He was canonized with other Spaniards – St. Ignatius Loyola, St. Francis Xavier, and St. Teresa of Avila on March 12, 1622.
As a parish, we are happy to be under his patronage as modern caretakers of the earth. We exercise our responsibility as good stewards of the earth’s resources and share them with the poor and needy.
