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
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.”

“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.”
