Welcome to the web page for Our Lady of the Mountains Parish. I hope that this site will be useful to all who visit it.
Happy Easter! Christ is Risen, Alleluia!
Congratulations and blessings to those who were baptized at the Easter Vigil. We look forward to the celebration of other Sacraments of Initiation: Confirmation at 5:00 pm mass on April 30 at St. Andrew’s and our First Communion mass here at OLM on Saturday May 6. Please pray especially for the young people who will be receiving these sacraments.
More good news: Tom Quirk who did his pastoral internship here at OLM will be ordained to the Transitional Deaconate on Saturday, June 17. Meanwhile, our current intern, Peter Pedrasa will complete his internship May 14. We will have a potluck supper for him on Friday, May 12 at 6:00 pm.
Visitors are always welcome to our parish, so if you are traveling through the area, we hope to see you soon in person.
We have been updating our parish Facebook page frequently. You can take a look by clicking on the link on the left side of the page.
If you haven’t stopped our parish offices recently, you are in for a pleasant surprise. We have done some remodeling and the offices are now laid out in a much more logical fashion so that we can serve you better.
The Annual Catholic Appeal is at our monetary goal, but we are not yet at our participation goal. Thank you to all who have made your gift. If you haven’t, you can make your pledge using the link at the side of this page. It is so important that everyone participate since this appeal helps prepare for the future of our Church here in southern Arizona by helping to train priests, deacons and lay ministers. It also helps support our schools and our youth ministries and helps Catholic Social Services help those in need.
Speaking of schools, All Saints Catholic School is now registering students for next year. If you are a child, this is the place to be!
Finally, for all you long range planners out there, I will be leading a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in October of 2018. You can take a look at the save the date flier here.
God’s blessings for a blessed and joyful Easter,
