Chaplain's Message

Christ is Risen! Indeed he is Risen! The Easter liturgical season and Springtime invites us to reflect on new life. St. Paul teaches us that in belonging to Christ we become like Christ and hold a new status in God's eyes because of the sacrifice of Christ on the Cross. How are we called to respond to this gracious gift? We have been called to more.... we have been called to live for others- we bring about the Kingdom of God in the here in now. Let us pray for one another, be kind to one another, assume generously, and most importantly, above all else love one another.

NEW! 2022-2023 School Year Calendar - Approved by EICS

Common Topics and Quick Links

OLPH Parish

  1. A Reminder about spring registration for First Reconciliation & First Holy Communion INCLUDING a special invitation for family whose children age 7-10 are not yet Baptized. We have special preparation available for those families so the little ones can be welcomed in Baptism during the Easter season then go on to celebrate the other sacraments with their classmates. Please share widely in your classrooms! A direct invitation from the grade 2-4 teachers would be extremely helpful.
  2. Invitations for two different adult Faith Formation opportunities being offered in April by the parish GiFT Committee (Growing in Faith Together.) Please share with all EICS staff and parents. You do not need to be an OLPH parishioner to participate.
