Our Lady of Hope seeks to respond as a welcoming parish. All are welcome here: long-time parishioners, new arrivals, those seeking a spiritual home, those who have been away, members of the LGBTQ+ community, new Mainers, immigrants, and those who may be separated or divorced. We are all God’s children. All welcome.
“We pray for those for whom home is no longer a safe place.”

What Our Parishioners are Saying
No matter what stage of life I’ve arrived in, OLH has welcomed me with open arms. Years ago, I was interested in joining the music ministry. I gathered the courage to inquire about it, and was met with a whole-hearted welcome. Every time I’ve sought to be more involved in an event or ministry, I’ve been received the same way.
The congregation at OLH is friendly and warm, and I truly feel spiritually fed after listening to the homilies at Mass each week.”

Learning about Ignatian Spirituality has helped me see God in everything. That grace has provided me great comfort and ease as I take on the days’ challenges.
“…gratitude for the gift of being able to take part in the wonderful ministry at our Lady of Hope Parish through online Masses and the bountiful resources offered on the website. Though I live in (mid-Coast) and so am not able to participate in person, I receive great benefit from being a member of Our Lady of Hope’s “online community.”
