First Friday Holy Hour for Our Nation

Join Us in Prayer and Eucharistic Adoration for our Nation Friday, July 2nd at 7:00 pm at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church.

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor. ( last line of the  Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776 )

Let us join in prayer and show our reliance on our heavenly Father to protect and preserve this great nation as it faces many challenges.

Let us ask His blessing on this great experiment in freedom and democracy.

Women╩╝s Bible Study  --  "Who Am I to Judge"

In this small group study, we’ll explore the classical view of morality and find that it’s not merely a set of guiding principles for theological situations- it’s an entire way of life. Is there a right and wrong for everyone? How do we talk about morality in a relativistic world?

4/15/21 for 8 weeks THURSDAY EVENINGS @7:00pm

For more information or to register, contact MELISSA at cell: 860-459-6679 or missykh2@gmail.com

****I’ll be ordering study guides 3/29. Let me know if you want to purchase one.

2021 Archbishop's Annual Appeal

Reaching Out, Healing Together

The 2021 Archbishop's Annual Appeal is integral to the mission and services of the Archdiocese of Hartford. As in the past, this year's efforts will create new opportunities and expand existing services for those living and working within the Northern, Western, and Southern Vicariates.  Additionally, the Appeal ensures the funding necessary so that our vital ministries, seminarians, retired clergy, catholic schools and agencies continue to thrive serving thousands throughout the Archdiocese.  


Pope Francis proclaims “Year of St. Joseph”

With the Apostolic Letter “Patris corde” (“With a Father’s Heart”), Pope Francis recalls the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To mark the occasion, the Holy Father has proclaimed a “Year of Saint Joseph” from December 8, 2020, to December 8, 2021.  "We need only ask Saint Joseph for the grace of graces: our conversion. Let us now make our prayer to him:


Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.
Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy and courage, and defend us from every evil. Amen."


Given in Rome, at Saint John Lateran, on 8 December, Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, in the year 2020, the eighth of my Pontificate.

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:
