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.

Song for Marian Month of May

Quote for the Week

 “Convert our hearts, Lord, so that love may spread here on earth.”

 

 Pope Francis

 

Spotlight on Saints

Saint Mary Magdalene De’ Pazzi

May 24

 

Saint Mary Magdalene de’ Pazzi is known as the “ecstatic saint” because of her unusual gifts from God. To safeguard the authenticity of her visions, her confessor had her dictate them to fellow sisters. The result was five volumes encompassing ecstasies, letters, and inspirational sayings. But her life was not all sweetness; she also battled with temptations.

 

Saint of the Week

Visitation Of The Blessed Virgin Mary

May 31

 

This feast is both about two women and about two men. The Blessed Virgin Mary goes to visit Elizabeth to assist her in her final days of pregnancy. But as she greets Elizabeth, the babe in Elizabeth’s womb--John the Baptist--leaps for joy at the presence of Jesus in Mary’s womb. Great mysteries of life are at play here.
