Under the protection of Our Lady of Refuge and guided by the Holy Spirit, our parish family is dedicated to the propagation of our faith, rooted in the Sacraments, Sacred Scriptures and Traditions of the Catholic Church. As stewards of the Father’s gifts, we strive to reflect the love of Christ through the support of our parish and in our service to others.
Joining Our Lady of Refuge
In order to register as a member of the parish, I would like to personally meet with you and welcome you. The easiest way to do this is to see me after any of the weekend Masses. I have the form in the sacristy and can quickly register you. If you are new to our area or never got around to registering, I would be happy to meet with you and take care of this. Also, if there are any questions, concerns or special needs that you may have, see me after Mass.
Father Gerald A. McEnhill
Fr. McEnhill also prefers to meet the couple personally in the sacristy following whichever of the weekend Masses they attend, to begin planning. Marriage preparation requires six months before the wedding, and a couple’s freedom to marry needs to be established before the date is set to avoid any difficult conflicts. For obvious reasons, it is best to make all those arrangements with Father before you reserve the hall.
Baptisms occur on the second Sunday of the month at 1:00 p.m. by appointment. Please call the Parish Office well in advance to schedule your child’s Baptism with Fr. McEnhill. Parents and God Parents will need to attend the preparation class, so please meet with Father as soon as possible to be on the schedule.
