WELCOME TO OUR PARISH WEBSITE

If you happen to check this website for some information about us, it is my hope that you will find what you are looking for and that it will be of help to you.  The information contained in this website does not capture who or what we are as a parish family community.  Technology has lessened somewhat the personal contact and relationship that is essentially indicative of Christ’s incarnation and redemption.

So, visit us and our two worship sites, our Churches, for our liturgies.  Say a prayer to Our Lady of Hope, our Patroness.  And, share your faith and your love through the use of your time, the development of your talent, and the generous share of your treasure.

God loves you always and in all ways.


 

MISSION STATEMENT

Through the intercession of Mary our Mother and Saint Jerome, we the parish families of Our Lady of Hope are called to live and proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We strive to grow as a vibrant and welcoming community through worship, evangelization, and ministry to those in need by sharing the resources, time, and talents given by God.

Am I not free to do as I wish
with my own money? Are you
envious because I am generous?

God has not abandoned us and is present among us. As we learn each day of the growing concern surrounding the spread of the coronavirus in our communities, we need to have faith and confidence in God, especially in times like these, praying that He will see us through the present adversity safely.

Mindful of the Lord Jesus’ own words in St. Luke’s Gospel, “If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself, take up his Cross daily, and follow me (Luke 9: 23),” the coronavirus pandemic has placed such a Cross before us.
