The OLPH Parish Vision

Dear Growing Disciples of Our Lady of Perpetual Help,

I dream of a parish with vibrant liturgies, where people come to worship the Lord through prayer, word and song.  I see a community where the stranger, the visitor and the parishioner experience hospitality like never before.  They are welcomed and greeted and made to feel at home at OLPH.  I see a filled parking lot long before Mass begins and a congregation preparing to receive the Word of God and the Body and Blood of Christ.  I see people filled with the Holy Spirit, ready to meet the living Christ in their personal encounters throughout the week.  I see our facilities filled with growing disciples who hunger to learn more about Prayer, Jesus Christ, Social Justice, Liturgy, Church, Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy and so much more.  I see us all growing in our personal relationship with God and moving our way through trust, curiosity, openness, seeking to making a commitment to Jesus and becoming intentional Disciples.  I see a community not afraid to get their hands dirty and care for the poor and needy.  I see the homeless being met by parishioners who smile, ask their names and find out how they might be served.  I see a Catholic School filled with families (near and far) that live their faith each and every day and are grateful for the gift of a Catholic Education knowing their sacrifice and commitment is shared by active participating members of the parish who exemplify, along with the school parents, what it means to be alive in faith.  And there’s more to the dream.

There’s much to be done.  Will you join me in doing the work and being Jesus’ disciples?

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Fr. Greg

Pastor
