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 JUNE 23,  2019

Jesus spoke to the crowds
about the kingdom of God,
and he healed those
who needed to be cured.
As the day was drawing to a close,
the Twelve approached him and said,
"Dismiss the crowd
so that they can go to the
surrounding villages and farms
and find lodging and provisions;
for we are in a deserted place here."
He said to them,
"Give them some food yourselves."
They replied,
"Five loaves and two fish are all we have,
unless we ourselves go and
buy food for all these people."
Now the men there numbered
about five thousand.
Then he said to his disciples,
"Have them sit down
in groups of about fifty."
They did so and made them all sit down.
Then taking the five loaves
and the two fish,
and looking up to heaven,
he said the blessing over them,
broke them,
and gave them to the disciples
to set before the crowd.
They all ate and were satisfied.
And when the leftover
fragments were picked up,
they filled twelve wicker baskets.

                  

      

 
 

PRAYER INTENTION FOR JUNE

The Internet is a gift of God, but it is also a great responsibility.
Communication technology, its places, its instruments have brought with it a lengthening of horizons, a widening, for so many people.
It can offer immense possibilities for encounter and solidarity.
May the digital network not be a place of alienation.
May it be a concrete place, a place rich in humanity.

Let us pray together that social networks may work towards
that inclusiveness which respects others for their differences.

SAINT OF THE DAY

St. Josemaria Escriva (1902-1975) was born in Spain, one of six children of a devout Catholic family. Growing up, he observed his parents faithfully endure painful family trials (the death of three of their young children and devastating financial setbacks) and this had a profound effect on his own faith. As a teenager he discovered his vocation to the priesthood when he saw the path of footprints in the snow left by a barefoot Carmelite friar. He then experienced a radical conversion: he gave up his intended career as an architect and entered the seminary. He spent most of his life studying and teaching in universities, earning a doctorate in civil law and theology. Saint Josemaria Escriva's lasting impact lies in the foundation of Opus Dei (“The Work of God”), an organization of laity and priests dedicated to the universal call of holiness and the belief that ordinary, daily life is an authentic path to sanctity. Today Opus Dei has over 80,000 members worldwide. His famous written work is The Way, a collection of spiritual and pastoral reflections on the gospels and their application to everyday life. On June 26, 1975, after glancing at an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe in his office in Rome, St. Josemaría died suddenly of cardiac arrest. He was canonized by Pope St. John Paul II. His feast day is June 26th.
