  • Parents of High School Students - SIGN YOUR KIDS UP

              This is definitely something worth pushing your teen to try! July 12-14th Steubenville East       High School Youth Conference at UMASS!  SIGN UP RIGHT AWAY, as I only have 10 Spots reserved and this ALWAYS Sells Out!  Thousands of High School Teens gather for Nationally known Catholic Youth Speakers, Awesome Praise & Worship Music, Mass, and Lots of Fun!  Cost is $300, but we’re working on ways to subsidize that.

  • HELP NEEDED!  We’d like to do Vacation Bible School/Catholic Day Camp this Summer but need a LOT of volunteers.  High School Teens, College Students, Parents, Parishioners – can you help out?  For questions or to sign up Call Amy Paquin at 860-806-5347 or email me at Religious.Ed@OurLadyofHopeParish.com.  Thank you for helping to make this a vibrant and loving parish community.

Call/text Amy Paquin for any questions: 860-806-5347 or email Religious.ed@OurLadyofHopeParish.com.


Bible Fair! 

This will be a no-pressure chance to check out (and order) all kinds of Catholic Bibles!  Has anyone ever taught you how to choose or use a Bible?!  Have you ever been taught how to look up a Bible verse?   You’ll have the opportunity to do that in a fun, judgment free environment!  There will be a variety of price points and styles for you to choose from if you would like to place an order.    

***Bibles will be on display for parents to look at during religious ed classes in the month of April AND at the April 7th Coffee Hour in the Social Center after the 9:30 am Mass ***

Easter Collection -- Social Concerns Ministry

The Social Concerns Ministry will be collecting Hams, boxed potatoes, canned vegetables and fruit including yams and pineapples, corn muffin mix, box cakes and frosting, Easter egg dye kits, and Bisquick mix for Easter Baskets to give to at least 36 families with hams. We are also supplying several Easter baskets for children to Fish and candy especially chocolate bunnies to Friendly Hands. Fifteen hams only will be given to the Bronc Callahan Foundation and 10-18 hams/food baskets to Catholic Charities and our families we personally serve. Please place items in the red wagon in the front entrance of the IHOM church. Please give members of the ministry outside the church the hams so they can be placed in the freezer on the weekends of March 30/31 and April 6/7.  Baskets will be distributed to families before Palm Sunday. Thank you again for all your kindness and generosity and making our collections so successful.

Collection for Middle and High-School Students

It has come to our attention that a portion of the student population at Regional School District 7 (which New Hartford and Barkhamsted students attend) could benefit from some basic necessities such as personal hygiene products. Also, although hot lunch is available at school, some children and teens may not have access to enough food at home to hold them over throughout the afternoon. If you would like to help, please consider donating one or more of the following items: * Individually pre-packaged snacks such as granola bars, fruit snacks, and cheese-and-cracker packs. * Feminine hygiene products * Dental floss, toothpaste/brush * Solid deodorant (NO sprays). You may leave the items in the collection bin in the bell tower at ICC. Questions? Contact Teresa or John Lovejoy at TeresaZLovejoy@gmail.com. (860) 201-6647. Thank you!

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:
