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.

 

Jesus said to his disciples:
“Whoever loves me will keep my word,
and my Father will love him,
and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him.
Whoever does not love me does not keep my words;
yet the word you hear is not mine
but that of the Father who sent me.

“I have told you this while I am with you.
The Advocate, the Holy Spirit,
whom the Father will send in my name,
will teach you everything
and remind you of all that I told you.
Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
Not as the world gives do I give it to you.
Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.
You heard me tell you,
‘I am going away and I will come back to you.’
If you loved me,
you would rejoice that I am going to the Father;
for the Father is greater than I.
And now I have told you this before it happens,
so that when it happens you may believe.”

YEAR OF MERCY WEEKLY REFLECTION

We want to live this Jubilee Year in light of the Lord’s words: Merciful like the Father. The Evangelist reminds us of the teaching of Jesus who says, “Be merciful just as your Father is merciful” (Lk 6:36). It is a programme of life as demanding as it is rich with joy and peace. Jesus’s command is directed to anyone willing to listen to his voice (cf. Lk 6:27). In order to be capable of mercy, therefore, we must first of all dispose ourselves to listen to the Word of God. This means rediscovering the value of silence in order to meditate on the Word that comes to us. In this way, it will be possible to contemplate God’s mercy and adopt it as our lifestyle.

— Pope Francis

Saint of the Day

Saint Joseph the Worker

Saint Joseph (1st c.) was born in Bethlehem in Judea and later settled in Nazareth. By Divine command he became the husband of the Virgin Mary and adoptive father to Jesus. We know from Scripture and Tradition that Saint Joseph was a virtuous man and a carpenter by trade. It was he who was entrusted with the great mission to guard, protect, and provide for the temporal needs of God's most precious gifts, the Virgin Mary and the Child Jesus, in the role of husband and father within the Holy Family. Saint Joseph's mission continues from heaven as the patron saint of the Catholic Church, as well as many causes including fathers, laborers, and families. His feast days are: Saint Joseph the Husband of Mary on March 19th, and Saint Joseph the Worker on May 1st. Pope Pius XII instituted the feast of Saint Joseph the Worker in 1955 to emphasize the dignity, meaning, and value of human work in the eyes of God, and to give all laborers a model of virtue as well as a heavenly intercessor and protector.
