Welcome to the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church!
After receiving authorization to resume public Masses from Bishop Gregory Parkes, and after a prayerful discernment and consultation with the leadership of the Parish Pastoral Council, our weekend public Masses have resumed but are still under strict CDC guidelines.
“Bishop Parkes wants you to understand that the Dispensation from the Sunday obligation to attend Mass remains in effect until further notice and applies to all Catholics. Bishop says that ‘no one should feel guilty for protecting their health or that of their loved ones’.” (Source: OLPH May 24th bulletin)

This past year 2020, has been very challenging for all of us. Nevertheless, you have been of a great support for our parish community and I am very grateful for that. But now, more than ever, we need to recognize we are part of a larger diocesan family and that, together, we work as one body to keep our diocese active and vibrant through our involvement in the Annual Pastoral Appeal (APA) Initiative. This year’s campaign is themed: “Hope in the Lord”. Please, consider to collaborate with APA 2021. Thank you! Rev. Hector Cruz, S.M.
