Our Lady of Hope

Spiritual Adoption Program  --  Baby is Four Months

Well, I now weigh six ounces and mom can feel my movements. I have fingernails, eyelashes, and my own unique fingerprints, which will remain the same for the rest of my life. My taste buds are working and my sense of hearing is developing. I have soft hair all over my body. I can touch my hand to my face and grasp my feet. Basically, there will be no major new developments from here on. I just need nourishment, protection, and love...and prayers.
"It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish." Mother Teresa

The Message of Our Lady of Fatima  -- PRAYER, PEACE & PENANCE

Join us for the next six months to pray the rosary at the Fatima Shrine in New Hartford.  We will pray from May to October on the 13th of each month at 12:10pm.  (The Shrine is on the Parish Office grounds)

We have so much to pray for … end of abortion, peace in the world, those suffering from natural disasters, an end to violence, etc.

During each of the apparitions Our Lady told the children of the importance of prayer and penance, especial during troubled times. 


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.
