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 March 17,  2019

Jesus took Peter, John, and James
and went up the mountain to pray.
While he was praying his face
changed in appearance
and his clothing became dazzling white.
And behold, two men were conversing
with him, Moses and Elijah,
who appeared in glory and
spoke of his exodus
that he was going to
accomplish in Jerusalem.
Peter and his companions
had been overcome by sleep,
but becoming fully awake,
they saw his glory and the
two men standing with him.
As they were about to part from him,
Peter said to Jesus,
"Master, it is good that we are here;
let us make three tents,
one for you, one for
Moses, and one for Elijah."
But he did not know what he was saying.
While he was still speaking,
a cloud came and
cast a shadow over them,
and they became frightened
when they entered the cloud.
Then from the cloud came a voice that said,
"This is my chosen Son; listen to him."
After the voice had spoken,
Jesus was found alone.
They fell silent and did not at that time
tell anyone what they had seen.

SAINT OF THE DAY

St. Nicholas of Flüe (1417-1487) was born in Switzerland, a devout child of pious parents. At the age of 21 he joined the army and fought in local battles. In his mid-twenties, at the advice of his parents, he married a similarly pious woman and had five sons and five daughters. He served the public by holding various civil offices, and was esteemed by all for his moral integrity. After 25 years of marriage, upon discerning a special call from God, and with the consent of his wife, he went to live in a nearby valley as a hermit. He built a dwelling out of branches and left it only for daily Mass. He wore a tunic and kept his head and feet bare, spending his days in prayer and penance on behalf of the local people. With permission from the parish priest he abstained totally from food and drink, without any negative effect on his health, which was confirmed by the Church as a miracle. He lived in this manner for 20 years and became known as a visionary and a prophet. Distinguished persons from all over Europe came to him for counsel. The civil authorities built him a cell and chapel and assigned him a chaplain. The saint intervened as an arbiter when a civil war was imminent, resulting in the enduring union of the French and German-speaking parts of Switzerland. His hermitage became a place of pilgrimage after his death. St. Nicholas of Flüe is the patron saint of Switzerland. His feast day is March 21st.
