Dear Parishioners and Friends of Our Lady of the Snows Parish,
Welcome! Thank you for visiting Our Lady of the Snows R.C. Church parish website. We, at Our Lady of the Snows, have created this site so that all who visit it may be able to share in our mission: to encourage others to renew and energize their faith in Jesus and His Church. Please feel free to explore our website and to take advantage of all that you experience as a moment of prayer. We hope it will inspire a deeper awareness of our faith and encourage you to contact us personally in the parish so we may better serve your needs.
To all who are tired and need rest;
to all who mourn and need comfort;
to all who are friendless and need friendship;
to all who are discouraged and need hope;
to all who are homeless and need sheltering love;
to all who sin and need a Savior;
and to all who come to be with us for any reason,
the Parish of Our Lady of the Snows,
opens wide its doors to you
in the name of Our Lord, Jesus Christ!
TO THOSE OF YOU WHO DO NOT KNOW US . . .
We would like to tell you who we are and what we are trying to do by sharing with you our Parish Mission Statement . . .
We the people of Our Lady of the Snows Parish are a Catholic Christian community who reach out to one another and to all people by teaching and giving witness to the Good News of Jesus Christ. Our mission is to invite all to hear, share, and live the Word of God. We try to inspire an awareness of our faith and to encourage others to renew and energize that faith in Jesus and His Church. We want to welcome the entire community to enjoy the warmth and love of our parish by participating fully in the sacramental life of the Church.
TO OUR NEW PARISHIONERS . . .
We are delighted and grateful that you have recently become part of our parish family. You are an important member in our faith community and we pray that you will always feel warmly received as well as spiritually enriched here at Our Lady of the Snows. We look forward to seeing you on a regular basis as we grow in our faith and love for Jesus.
TO OUR MANY LONG TIME PARISHIONERS . . .
Your faithful presence, and continuous support of Our Lady of the Snows Parish and each other is the inspiration behind our Parish Mission Statement. Please read it slowly and carefully from time to time and know, it is because of your many examples of Christian love and service that it exists and reads true. Thank you for keeping Our Lady of the Snows Church alive with the love of Jesus, who gives us the strength and grace we need to do His will.
May our Lord bless you and your family and may Our Lady of the Snows intercede and watch over you all the days of your life.
