We want to give you a 15-minute break from the busy each day -a chance to stop and reflect and prepare for the coming of Christ.
November 7, 2022
Each week we post the Prayers of the Faithful from the weekend Masses so that you can use them as a reflection, should you wish.
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
“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.”

“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.”
“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
