Welcome to the website of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish.
In this Jubilee year, the 150th anniversary of the handing of the icon of Our Lady of Perpetual Help to the Redemptorists, we warmly welcome you to discover or rediscover the role of Mary and her Son Jesus. Whether you are simply looking up our Mass schedule or seeking answers to the big questions of life, you are in a good place to begin.
We are a Catholic, Eucharistic community that lives by the Gospel values of Jesus Christ, inspired by the teaching and charism of St. Alphonsus Ligouri, founder of the Redemptorists. Our parishioners bear witness to the hope and joy of our faith by sharing their time, talent and treasure for the growth and development of the parish and school community.
If you are new to the neighbourhood or the parish, feel free to drop in at the office and say hello. For information about Our Lady of Perpetual Help School, please go to www.olphbc.ca.
