Church of the Resurrection
Roman Catholic Church
of the Diocese of Venice

Convinced that Jesus communicates a new life to those who believe in Him, and that He was raised from the dead in order that we might live, we are united to the risen Lord as a people born anew to a life of hope.

Called together as a people of faith, we believe that the Father who raised Jesus from the dead will also raise us, and that we will continue to bear witness to the fact that we are liberated from sin.

As a Resurrection people we are committed to victory over sin through charity, loving God above all else, each other and ourselves.
