Welcome to OLPH Parish in Vancouver

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.

Stewardship Reflection: 27th Sunday in Ordinary Time

“So out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called every living creature, that was its name.” - Genesis 2:19 The creation story reminds us of two important points. First, since the start, God has put the entire world into our care. Second, stewardship has been around since the beginning of mankind, it isn’t something recently invented by the Church. Just as past generations built our Church, it is now our responsibility to continue to nurture and develop these gifts for future generations.

Prayer to the Holy Family for the Synod

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, in you we contemplate the splendour of true love, to you we turn with trust.

Holy Family of Nazareth, grant that our families too may be places of communion and prayer, authentic schools of the Gospel and small domestic Churches.

Holy Family of Nazareth, may families never again experience violence, rejection and division: may all who have been hurt or scandalized find ready comfort and healing.

Holy Family of Nazareth, may the approaching Synod of Bishops make us, once more, mindful of the sacredness and inviolability of the family, and its beauty in God’s plan.

Jesus, Mary and Joseph, graciously hear our prayer.
