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 17,  2018

 

Jesus said to the crowds:
“This is how it is with the kingdom of God;
it is as if a man were to scatter seed on the land
and would sleep and rise night and day
and through it all the seed
would sprout and grow,
he knows not how.
Of its own accord the land yields fruit,
first the blade, then the ear,
then the full grain in the ear.
And when the grain is ripe,
he wields the sickle at once,
for the harvest has come.”
He said,
“To what shall we compare
the kingdom of God,
or what parable can we use for it?
It is like a mustard seed that,
when it is sown in the ground,
is the smallest of all the seeds on the earth.
But once it is sown, it springs up and
becomes the largest of plants
and puts forth large branches,
so that the birds of the
sky can dwell in its shade.”
With many such parables
he spoke the word to them as
they were able to understand it.
Without parables he did not speak to them,
but to his own disciples
he explained everything in private.

Saint of the Day

St. Gervase and St. Protase

St. Gervase and St. Protase (2nd century) were twin brothers born in the Roman Empire to Christian parents. Their parents were killed for their Christian faith, and the brothers likewise suffered martyrdom. They were imprisoned, scourged, and beheaded in Milan, Italy under the brutal persecutions of the Roman Emperor. In the year 386 A.D. the location of their relics was revealed in a dream to St. Ambrose, Bishop of Milan, just as he completed the building of the magnificent Milan basilica. He had the sacred relics moved to the new basilica, today called the Basilica of St. Ambrose, for veneration by the faithful. The relics established that the brothers were indeed beheaded as tradition had handed down. Many miracles occurred at their finding, confirmed by St. Ambrose and his disciple St. Augustine. St. Gervase and St. Protase are the patron saints of Milan. Their feast day is June 19.
