He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. John 6:56
On behalf of the parish of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, I would like to welcome you most warmly in God’s Holy Spirit to our community.
As the parish is named after Mary, we draw our inspiration from her example who, as the new Eve, was always open to the mission of her Son and always willing to cooperate in seeing that mission fulfilled. We are a very vibrant and committed community believing that in being so, we are empowering Christ’s mission of salvation to the world in the Holy Spirit.
There are many forms that mission takes - all equally important in securing the growth of God’s kingdom. I would encourage you to read carefully and prayerfully about the different societies of the parish and to ask God to guide you as to which of them you would be most effective in.
As St Paul says, we all form one body and each of us is called to be effective as one part of that body. God has distributed different gifts suitable for building up our unity in diversity. I am sure that you will find which service best suits the gifts that God has endowed your life with.
Every blessing, Father Mike
