Why I Returned to The Catholic Church

Tim Francis, a nationally-known speaker who has presented at hundreds of parishes across the country, will be coming to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish for 3 nights this October to share his remarkable story about why he returned to the Catholic Church including footage of the Eucharistic and other miracles that convicted him of the Truths of the Catholic Faith.

Greetings and welcome to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, Morton. May the grace and peace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you!
The mission of the Church is the mission of Jesus Christ, “to have life and have it fully.” Jesus is our priest, prophet, and king who sanctifies, teaches, and governs the People of God in his Church, his espoused bride. Each parish is part of the universal Church in the diocese in which it is located. Each parish exists to carry out the mission of the local bishop to teach, sanctify, and govern under the ministry of the local pastor with his assistants, priests, and deacons.
“The parish is a privileged place where the faithful concretely experience the church” (Ecclesia in America, #41). The parish “is the place where all the faithful can be gathered together for the Sunday celebration of the Eucharist. The parish initiates the Christian people into the ordinary expression of liturgical life—it gathers them together in this celebration, it teaches Christ’s saving doctrine, it practices the charity of the Lord in good works and brotherly love” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, #2179).
I am pleased to welcome you to the web site of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Our parish life revolves around seven vital areas: Worship, Christian Community, Evangelization, Teaching, Service, Leadership, and Stewardship. Our web site, which includes general information, sacramental celebration and requirements, and parish organizations, programs, support, etc., is offered to you as a means to assist you with the particulars of Catholic life in our parish.
In addition, for your convenience we have compiled and included a section on parishioners’ business services, which might prove useful for your daily needs.
I encourage each of you to live your Catholic faith as an active member of our parish family. I also invite you to participate in our parish programs and activities. I pray that together in the spirit of Christ we may continue to build up our parish to truly reflect the Gospel message of love and charity under the care and protection of Our Lady of Perpetual Help.
Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Msgr. John M. Savinski, Pastor
