Social Concerns Ministry Outreach

This year the Social Concerns Ministry will be collecting Christmas toys for needy children, gift cards for teenagers, and hats, scarves, mittens, gloves, socks, and underwear. Gift cards for teenagers from Wal-Mart, Target, Shoe stores, and Dunkin Donuts are in high demand and would be greatly appreciated. We will also accept donations for Two Hearts: diapers, clothes size 2-5, winter coats 12 months to 5T, baby food and formula, baby wash/shampoo, diaper cream, onesies, and gift cards. The donations will be given to children by Fish, Catholic Charities, Two Hearts, and Friendly Hands and to our own families that the Social Concerns Ministry donates to. The collection is taking place the weekends of November 30/December 1; December 7/8 and December 14/15. Parishioners can select tags from the giving trees at IHOM located near the choir and ICC in the Bell Tower.  Please drop off the items next to the trees. We are also collecting food for the families our parish deals with directly.  On behalf of the Social Concerns Ministry, we want to thank you for your generosity the entire year.

Our Lady of Calvary Retreat Center   --   Farmington, CT

On the weekend of January 10-12, the women of our parish are invited to Our Lady of Calvary Retreat Center.  Experience a weekend filled with rest, relaxation and spiritual renewal.  At Our Lady of Calvary, the natural beauty of the grounds and the peaceful atmosphere of the retreat house can provide a much needed break from your daily routine.  You’ll have the opportunity to participate in the sacraments, to hear conference talks, to share with other women and to reflect on this year’s theme,  “How can I keep from singing”. 

Come spend time looking for what is beautiful. Intentionally take time to focus on those things that lift you up and help you to feel closer to your God, the One who sends beauty to refresh, nurture, and sustain you, the One who invites you into beauty's Immortal Heart. You may rediscover beautiful things that perhaps you've taken for granted. For information please call the Parish Office at 860.379.5215.

Our Parishes’ Great Adventure Bible Study Continues

Join your fellow parishioner’s ongoing Great Adventure for Acts: the Spread of the Kingdom at Trinita every other Tuesday for 20 sessions from 6:30—8:30pm. 

Acts is the story of how a few Christians empowered by the Holy Spirit were chosen to bring Christ and the Good News to the ends of the earth.  They faced secular forces, internal strife, and hostile crowds, and despite all this, they brought the kingdom of God to a broken world and the love of God to the hearts of men. 

For more information or to register for the Study, forms are available on the tables at the back of the Church, or contact Ken Foisie at 860-678-7922 cfn_inc@comcast.net,  Deborah Kellogg at djkrunning@yahoo.com; Yvonne Stoops at YStoops@gmail.com 860.693.1913 or Sanita Gingras at segingas116@yahoo.com.

Online Giving Message

We are proud to announce that Our Lady of Hope is keeping up with technology, and now has the ability for online giving.  Contributions can be made to the parish online safety via an encrypted website.  Online giving makes it easy when you are unable to attend Mass.  It's real simple to do.  Here are two simple ways:

     1.  Sign up here at the website.  Click on the "online giving" button that is found on the home page.  For the first time user, just click on "create new account".  This is a one-time account set-up.  This allows you to make donations to the church with options as a one-time gift or recurring.

     2.  The second way for accessing online giving is from your phones. Simply download the app for free from Apple or Google stores.  The name of the app is "Online Giving by Our Sunday Visitor".  From there it's the same login process as the website.

IMPORTANT:  All current IHOM online givers please sign up on the Our Lady of Hope Parish portal and cancel your current account on the IHOM portal.
