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. (but if you just want to get  to purgatory, you are welcome as well.)

 

 

 

Lent Schedule

Way of the Cross

Every Friday:

after 8 am mass in English

at 6:00 pm bilingual, read by the children.

 

 

 

Jesus took Peter, James, and John
and led them up a high mountain apart by themselves.
And he was transfigured before them,
and his clothes became dazzling white,
such as no fuller on earth could bleach them.
Then Elijah appeared to them along with Moses,
and they were conversing with Jesus.
Then Peter said to Jesus in reply,
“Rabbi, it is good that we are here!
Let us make three tents:
one for you, one for Moses, and one for Elijah.”
He hardly knew what to say, they were so terrified.
Then a cloud came, casting a shadow over them;
from the cloud came a voice,
“This is my beloved Son. Listen to him.”
Suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone
but Jesus alone with them.

As they were coming down from the mountain,
he charged them not to relate what they had seen to anyone,
except when the Son of Man had risen from the dead.
So they kept the matter to themselves,
questioning what rising from the dead meant.

SAINT OF THE DAY

St. Casimir of Poland

 St. Casimir (1458-1484) was the second son of King Casimir IV and Elizabeth of Austria. He made the decision to commit his life to God at an early age, despite pressure and ridicule from his family. He found the luxuries around him to be only temptations away from the true royalty of God. His birthright was thrust upon him at the age of 13, when his father commanded he lead an army to Hungary and conquer the throne. Instead, Casimir abdicated the journey and returned with the army. His refusal to rule was clear, and Casimir instead assumed administrative duties, overseeing correspondence and procedural affairs for his father and later briefly serving as the Viceroy of Poland. Despite his royal title, he resolved to live his life in simplicity. He exercised extreme asceticism and self-denial within the castle walls, even sleeping on the cold ground. He also took a vow of celibacy, which he upheld despite immense political pressure to marry. He suffered from a chronic lung condition, which he succumbed to in 1484 at the young age of 26. He is the patron saint of Poland, Lithuania, and young people. His feast day is March 4.
