Welcome to Our Lady of Grace.
When we look about and see the breadth of activities and ministries in our parish, the profound faith of our 3,000 parishioners, and the smiles on the faces of more than 300 kids in our School of Religion, we marvel at the work of the Lord in our parish. From a "postage stamp" missionary church only 60 years ago, Our Lady of Grace has grown to be the spiritual home of 1300 families. Scrolling through this website we are confident that you will see the fruits of much labor, a lot of which takes place in our beautiful parish hall, the Grogan Center.
The Grogan Center is not only a "beehive" of parish activity, but also serves the greater community on special occasions as part of our outreach to many who have less. Our dedicated team of ministry and committee workers reflects the true spirit of stewardship that God calls us to, and unites us in a fellowship of sacred bonds.
Join us in your personal quest for a closer union with Jesus Christ. He is surely present here, not only in the ever-present Eucharist, but in the hearts and minds of our faithful parishioners.
A few years back, Retired Pastor, Father Nick McLoughlin, was asked to give us a few words that best described our parish. Without hesitation he said “CONCERN: concern for our community, concern for our parish and concern for our children.” These words came without hesitation because they came from his heart. We know that the heart of a parish is the Eucharist but the parish family is the body that makes it a unique and vibrant community with an exciting parish life. Our parish offers a variety of ways to be part of that communal family in addition to the celebration of the sacraments. Another way to participate in our parish life is through the various parish ministries, organizations and functions. God calls us to use our gifts and talents to glorify Him and make life better for other people. Whatever your talent or skill may be, Jesus Christ wants you to use it! You have a home at Our Lady of Grace and you have a place here to use your gifts to build up the Body of Christ.
"Our profession of faith begins with God, for God is the First and the Last, the beginning and the end of everything. The Credo begins with God the Father, for the Father is the first divine person of the Most Holy Trinity; our Creed begins with the creation of heaven and earth, for creation is the beginning and the foundation of all God's works."
---the Catechism of the Catholic Church, no. 198.
Catholic belief is succinctly expressed in the profession of faith or credo called the Nicene Creed:
The seven sacraments of the Catholic Church—Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Communion, Confession, Marriage, Holy Orders, and the Anointing of the Sick—are the life of the Catholic Church. Each sacrament is an outward sign of an inward grace. When we participate in them worthily, each provides us with graces—with the life of God in our soul. In worship, we give to God that which we owe Him; in the sacraments, He gives us the graces necessary to live a truly human life. Click the photo below to find out more about the seven sacraments.
