Spiritual Adoption Program

Everyone loves the beauty and innocence of a baby.  As an expression of that love, Our Lady of Hope announces an adoption program for young and old alike.  The parish will have the opportunity this weekend to “spiritually” adopt a child who is newly conceived this month.  Pledge cards will be available at the back of the church.  Take one and bring it back the following weekend.  Not all newly conceived babies are allowed to be born.  In fact, more than 4,000 babies lose their lives to abortion each day.  It is these babies you are being asked to “adopt”.  You may “adopt” a child individually or as a family by signing up this weekend.  You will be asked to name the child for whom you will be praying, thereby acknowledging the baby’s humanity.  You will be asked to pray for your unborn child and their parents for the next 9 months.  The power of prayer is great.  Watch the bulletin for monthly reports describing your baby’s development.  At the end of the 9 months, there will be a baby shower, and all the gifts brought to the party will be donated to Two Hearts Pregnancy Care Center.

Feast of St. Blaise and Blessing of the Throat

February 3rd is the feast day of St. Blaise, bishop and martyr. He was the bishop of Sebaste, located in Armenia, during the early 300’s. Church tradition tells us of many miracles worked through his intercession, most notably the healing of a young boy who was choking to death on a fish bone. Because of this miracle, Catholics for over 1500 years have asked his prayers to help with ailments of the throat. Father John will be blessing the throats at all Masses next weekend February 4/5.

This Lent, in “No Greater Love,” Experience the Unconditional Love Christ Has for You

Each Lent we hear about Jesus’ passion and death, but imagine if you had never heard these stories before.  Imagine experiencing them for the very fist time, and realizing that Jesus is a real person who really suffered and died for you so that we can have eternal life. 

Beginning at 6:30pm at Trinita on Feb 7th, our parishes will be offering a five-part Bible study program that will help you experience Christ’s Passion and Death as you never have before.  In No Greater Love, a Biblical Walk Through Christ’s Passion, we will walk step by step with Jesus through the last hours of His life on His journey from the Garden to His crucifixion on Calvary.  And each step along the way, you will experience a deeper understanding and appreciation of Old Testament prophecies, biblical symbolism, historic context, and God’s immeasurable and unconditional love for you—grow closer to Jesus that you ever have before. 

For more information or to register, see the Information Table in the Vestibule or contact Ken Foisie at 860-678-7922 or cfn_inc@comcast.net.

Bereavement Ministry Needs You!

Our Lady of Hope Parish needs compassionate friends who want to offer comfort to help their fellow parishioners who are dealing with overwhelming grief by reaching out to them throughout the first year of their loss, with correspondence and/or phone calls and through ongoing prayers for them and for the repose of the souls of their departed loved ones.

If you’ve experienced the loss of loved ones, you are aware of the pain that takes hold of those left behind. Please prayerfully consider helping to bring hope to our grieving parishioners who are mourning the loss of loved ones who have been called to their new life in heaven, through the resurrection of Jesus.

For more information, or to join our Parish Bereavement Ministry, please contact Connie Burzinske at 860-496-0708, or by email at cburzins@aol.com.
