Religious Education Update

  • If registering your child late (after Sept. 1), please note:

    Class size limitations: Due to safety issues and to ensure that the children get the highest quality instruction in every class session and a healthy adult to child ratio, certain sessions are no longer open to increased enrollment.  But there is still room in alternate sessions.

    Grade 2 Session A is full.  No more enrollment is being accepted for Grade 2 on Monday evenings. There IS room, however, in Grade 2 Session B, which meets on alternate Thursdays.

    Grade 4 Session A is also full.  No more enrollment is being accepted for Grade 4 on Monday evenings.  There IS room, however, in Grade 4 Session B, which meets on alternate Thursdays beginning on Sept 26.

  • OTHER DATES TO MARK ON YOUR CALENDAR

    *Session B Religious Ed Classes begin: Tuesday, Sept. 24th

    *Not all dates are every other week due to holidays, parent teacher conferences, etc.  Pay close attention to the dates once they are published in the bulletin, on hand-outs in the back of churches, and on the OurLadyofHopeParish.com website.

Our Parishes’ Great Adventure Bible Study Continues

Join your fellow parishioner’s ongoing Great Adventure for Acts: the Spread of the Kingdom at Trinita beginning Tuesday, Sept. 17th  and continuing 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.
