Welcome to Our Parish

We are Our Mother

of Perpetual Help Parish

On January 1, 2014, Our Lady of Fatima, which was founded in 1950, and St. James, which was founded in 1919, became Our Mother of Perpetual Help Parish. Both churches have a rich and wonderful history.  However, as Our Mother of Perpetual Help we are dedicated to moving forward into our future with compassion, generosity and an openness of spirit.

We believe that the nurturing of the community around the Eucharistic Table is extended through gatherings which further strengthen and support us.  We foster this faithfully through the power of the Holy Spirit and the gifts and talents of our members.  We continue to walk our journey together with the Lord, our future secure in the knowledge that we have common goals in God's ever-present love. Father Paul Chateau is our Pastor and leads our parish.

Prayer to Our Mother of Perpetual Help

          

 

 

 

Our Mother of Perpetual Help, 

Today we face so many difficulties. You remind us to reach out and help those in need. Help us understand that our lives belong to others as much as they belong to us. Mary, Model of Christian love, we know we cannot heal every ill or solve every problem. But with God's grace, we intend to do what we can. May we be true witnesses to the world that love for one another really matters. May our daily actions proclaim how fully our lives are modeled after yours, Mother of Perpetual Help. Amen.
