The Catholic community of Our Lady of Perpetual Help, guided by the Holy Spirit, commits itself to work steadfastly in love and humility to discern the will of God as we seek to proclaim the mission of Jesus Christ in our Parish and beyond.

Gifted and called by our Baptism, we dedicate ourselves to minister to the diverse needs of all God's people through every
dimension of our worship, formation, fellowship, stewardship and service.

May all that we do in His name glorify Jesus Christ. Amen
