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 there.          

                                                                

 

GOSPEL  FOR OCTOBER 20,  2019

 

Jesus told his disciples a parable

about the necessity for them to pray

always without becoming weary.

He said, "There was a judge in a certain town

who neither feared God nor respected any human being.

And a widow in that town used to come to him and say,

'Render a just decision for me against my adversary.'

For a long time, the judge was unwilling,

but eventually he thought,

'While it is true that I neither fear God

nor respect any human being,

because this widow keeps bothering me

I shall deliver a just decision for her

lest she finally come and strike me.'"

The Lord said, "Pay attention to

what the dishonest judge says.

Will not God then secure the

rights of his chosen ones

who call out to him day and night?

Will he be slow to answer them?

I tell you; he will see to it that

justice is done for them speedily.

But when the Son of Man comes,

will he find faith on earth?"

 

                  

      

 

PRAYER INTENTION FOR 
OCTOBER

Today, a new impulse to the Church’s missionary activity is
needed to face the challenge of proclaiming
Jesus and his death and resurrection.

Reaching the peripheries – the human, cultural,
and religious settings still foreign to the Gospel:
this is what we call the “missio ad gentes”.

We must also remember that the heart
of the Church’s mission is prayer.

In this Extraordinary Missionary Month,
let us pray that the Holy Spirit may engender
a new missionary “spring” for all those
baptized and sent by Christ’s Church.

SAINT OF THE DAY

St. Ursula (4th c.) was a pious Christian princess from Britain, perhaps Wales. According to the 13th century Golden Legend she set sail and embarked on a pilgrimage to Rome with a large court of handmaids prior to settling in what is today western France, where she was to be joined in marriage to a local governor. Along her pilgrimage route she attracted many followers who were influenced by her holy example. On the return journey St. Ursula and her traveling maidens fell into the hands of the Huns, violent nomads from the East, who had invaded large swaths of Europe. St. Ursula and her company of virgins and other followers, which numbered 11,000, were tortured in an effort to have them renounce their faith. Steadfastly refusing, they were massacred in Cologne, Germany and buried together in a mass grave over which was built the Basilica of St. Ursula. Due to the varying accounts of her martyrdom and the difficulty of separating fact from legend, her feast day was suppressed in modern times. St. Ursula is the patroness of the Ursulines, a female religious order founded in 1535 by St. Angela Merici for the education of young girls. St. Ursula is also the patron of students, teachers, Catholic education, and of a holy death. Her feast day is October 21st.
