Our Mission Statement

We, the parish family of Our Lady of Hope, commit ourselves to continue the mission of Jesus Christ, to proclaim His Gospel, and to love one another as He loves us. We are a welcoming community of faith, guided by the Holy Spirit and centered on God’s Word and the Eucharist. Through the Sacraments, prayer, and the stewardship of our God-given gifts, we provide opportunities to grow closer to God and to serve members of the community.

Fast and abstinence practice: 
Fasting obliges all Catholics (from ages 18 to 59 inclusive) to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. On the fast days, we may take one full meal, two smaller meals and no snacking in between meals. Abstinence obliges all Catholics (14 years and older) to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday AND all other Fridays of Lent.

     ***The majority of the memorial bricks ordered have been placed by the Grotto on the parking lot side. ***
