PSR Registration Closes August 31

Just a few more days remain to sign up for Faith Formation! This year our goal is to support you as the primary teachers of the faith. Each quarter you will provided resources to help your entire family grow in your faith together. We do not want to add ONE MORE THING to your overflowing plate of things that have to be done each. Instead our focus is on giving you the gift of time together with your children, integrating the faith into your everyday lives. 


BAA/OLA Update

We have surpassed our parish goal for the Bishop’s Annual Appeal! Now, 100% of gifts above our BAA goal will come straight back to Our Lady of Perpetual Help, tax-free, toward the Our Lady Appeal. A huge thank you to all who have submitted their pledges! 

This year’s OLA will focus on replacing some of our HVAC units for the church building—one unit costs about $82,000. Any additional funds are planned to go toward audio-visual equipment (such as high-quality video cameras and sound recording tools), which will help us to adapt to some of the more permanent effects of the Coronavirus outbreak and reach our parishioners in new, exciting ways.  

So if you haven’t pledged yet, now is the time to do so! 

Bishop’s Annual Appeal/Our Lady Appeal

Due to the COVID-19 and recent suspension of public Masses, this year the Bishop’s Annual Appeal was moved from May and instead began the weekend of July 11-12. I know there are many obligations and concerns facing each of you and your families, but please consider supporting the ministries and programs made possible through the generosity of the people of faith. 

The overall goal for the Diocese this year is $6.85 million and our parish share of the Appeal is $148,468. If we exceed this goal, all excess payments received will come back tax free to us and go towards the Our Lady Appeal. This year’s Our Lady Appeal will focus on replacing some of our HVAC units for the church building—one unit costs about $82,000. Any additional funds are planned to go toward audio-visual equipment, which will help us adapt to some of the more permanent effects of the Coronavirus outbreak and reach our parishioners in new, exciting ways. 

Be assured of my gratitude for your gift – whatever the amount – and of my continuing prayers for you and your loved ones! We encourage everyone to go online to columbuscatholicgiving.org to make a secure pledge and/or gift. 

However, if you prefer, extra pledge envelopes will also be available to pick up at Our Lady.
