Our Lady of Perpetual Help

Mission Statement

 

We are a community of worship on Sundays and weekdays, growing spiritually, supporting the gracefully aging parishioners in our community, while also preparing and offering to our children in catechism class the tools they will need to use in their daily lives. We focus on training future Religious Education teachers about the teachings and protection of our children, with emphasis on their protection.

We support people in recovery from alcoholism and drugs. We are helping our young families with wedding ceremonies and do a follow up to confirm or assist in their spiritual growth.

We reach out to the poor as instructed by Pope St. John Paul II in his encyclical Solicitudo Rei Socialis and we reflect the wishes and prayers of our current Pope Francis.

OLPH is one of 42 parishes and 17 missions within the Diocese of Santa Rosa. We are focused on getting to heaven and you are most welcome to join us on our journey there.

A Tale of Two Popes

GOSPEL  FOR AUGUST 20,  2017
 


 

At that time, Jesus withdrew
to the region of Tyre and Sidon. 
And behold, a Canaanite woman
of that district came and called out,
"Have pity on me, Lord, Son of David! 
My daughter is tormented by a demon." 
But Jesus did not say a word in answer to her. 
Jesus' disciples came and asked him,
"Send her away,
for she keeps calling out after us."
He said in reply,
"I was sent only to the lost sheep
of the house of Israel."
But the woman came and did
Jesus homage, saying, "Lord, help me." 
He said in reply,
"It is not right to take
the food of the children
and throw it to the dogs." 
She said, "Please, Lord, for even
the dogs eat the scraps
that fall from the table of their masters." 
Then Jesus said to her in reply,
"O woman, great is your faith! 
Let it be done for you as you wish." 
And the woman's daughter
was healed from that hour.

Saint of the Day

Pope St. Pius X

Pope St. Pius X (1835-1914) was born Giuseppe Melchiore, one of ten children from an impoverished family living in Venetia, then under the political control of the Austrian Empire. His parents valued education and ensured that Giuseppe walked nearly four miles to school every day. Drawn to the priesthood, he received a scholarship to enter one of the best seminaries of his day, and was ordained in 1858. After the death of Pope Leo III, who made him cardinal, he was elected Supreme Pontiff in 1903. Saint Pius X was a man of virtue, sanctity, and zeal, and a great defender of the Catholic faith against heresy. He ranks as one of the greatest reforming popes in history. In his eleven-year pontificate he contributed to reforms in papal elections, seminary life, Eucharistic practice, liturgy, biblical studies, the Divine Office, catechesis, the organization of the Roman Curia, and canon law. He was also known as a pastoral pope for encouraging Catholic social action as well as the development of personal holiness, piety, and a daily lifestyle which reflected deep Christian values. He promoted the reading of Sacred Scripture by all the lay faithful, and harshly denounced the evil of Modernism as “the summation of all heresies.” He also lowered the age of First Holy Communion to the age of reason. He was particularly devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary under the title of Our Lady of Confidence. Pope St. Pius X is the patron of pilgrims and first communicants. His feast day is August 21st.
