O Mother of Perpetual Help, behold your children who come before you.
You know how much your Son desires to share with us the fruits of the Redemption.
So we ask you to continue interceding for all people that they may receive the gifts of peace and brotherhood.
Virgin Mary, your Son from the Cross gave you to us as our Mother too.
And you have chosen that we call you Our Mother of Perpetual Help.
Confident of your powerful intercession, we hope to receive the fullness of your Motherly love until the day when, with you, the angels and all the saints, we will praise the glory of God forever.
Amen

"This was a modern day miracle for us. It just proved that God is always watching out for us. We prayed for help, tools and muscle and that is just what we got."


Our Lady of Perpetual Help - Grove City, Ohio > Parish > Bulletins
www.ourladyofperpetualhelp.net
Our Lady of Perpetual Help is the Roman Catholic parish serving Grove City and southwest Franklin County, Ohio. OLPH consists of an active parish with a thriving K-8 school, along with latchkey and preschool programs in this growing suburb of Columbus.

Prayer is a communion and communication that touches God's heart! Join us for Morning Prayer, Monday through Friday at 7 a.m. We pray for approximately 20 minutes in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, or come to Mass and pray the Rosary after daily Mass weekdays. Men of the parish gather at 7 am, Saturday mornings, to spend about an hour in fellowship and Scripture reflection in the Parish Life Center.


Dear Parishioners,

    We are called to an even deeper commitment to make of this parish a home for all who enter our doors, a place of holy encounter with Christ and with one another, a beacon of hope for all who are searching, and a place where each of us are challenged and changed, so we can be sent out to renew the earth.

    Pope Francis, in his exhortation to the Church, Evangelii Gaudium, the Joy of the Gospel, in which he lays out his vision for the Church, says, “I prefer a church which is bruised, hurting and dirty because it has been out on the streets, rather than a church which is unhealthy from being confined and from clinging to its own security.” Pope Francis is challenging us to become liberated from any narrowness or self-absorption, and to allow a renewed encounter with God’s love to compel us into active and intentional participation in the mission of the Church. This is the real Joy of the Gospel, when we know that the fullest truth of our being is attained in the love and service of others, especially the poor and lowly.

    Everything we are and everything we do is centered in Christ.   All of our parish life is first and foremost the Lord’s work; it is God’s creating, redeeming and nourishing grace that is the foundation of everything, and which mysteriously brings about, inspires, provokes, guides and accompanies us in a thousand ways. In the Joy of Gospel, Pope Francis says, “I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting him encounter them; I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day. No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her, since no one is excluded from the joy brought by the Lord. The Lord does not disappoint those who take this risk; whenever we take a step toward Jesus, we come to realize that he is already there, waiting for us with open arms.”

    What I love most about Francis is he gives us a great example of an intentional disciple, by living simply, loving joyfully, serving others tenderly, speaking truth with love, and inviting all to a life in Christ, especially those living closer to the cross than the resurrection.

Love, Fr. Dan
