Welcome

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.”

Four Universal Apostolic Preferences of the Global Society of Jesus

Vital for our world today, these guide the work of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) through this decade and unite us in a common focus: Showing the way to God through the Spiritual Exercises and the practice of discernment, Walking with the poor, the outcasts of the world, and those whose dignity has been violated, in the mission of reconciliation and justice; Walking together with young people to build a hope-filled future, and Working together to care for the earth, our common home.

What Our Parishioners are Saying

“I have been attending the 5:00 Mass for almost two decades; it has been my go-to time of worship. If you also go to the 5:00 Sunday Mass, I’m honored, and grateful to share this time with you, worshiping together. Thank you for giving of yourselves by attending – I don’t take that for granted. Yet, fellowship amongst us can stretch beyond these four walls, and events offered by the parish events committee are designed not only as a major fundraiser(s) for our parish, but a form of fellowship for us all to enjoy together. So, I’d like to encourage you to consider joining in and seeing for yourselves what life is like in this parish outside these four walls.”

Scott Dalton, Portland

“When life became too busy, I drifted from the church. I didn’t realize what I had given up is what I had needed most.”

–Peter R.

“I have been a member for approximately 10 years.  Homilies are meaningful and lots of opportunities to become involved in church life.”

— Diane Richard

 

“As I have moved around the country and the state, I have been a member of many parishes. Since joining Our Lady of Hope parish, I look forward to participating in the celebration of the Mass more than I ever have before.”

— James McCarthy
