“We are dedicated to serving God and one another with love and understanding”. – OLS Parish Mission Statement

Joy.  Faithfulness.  Care.  Compassion.  These words are used to describe who we claim to be, who we hope to be, who we are challenged to be.  As you scroll through our parish website, you will see these words come to life in the faces of our parishioners and the activities and programs we create, inviting each and every member of our community into a deeper relationship with Our Lord and one another.

“Challenged by the Word and nourished by the Eucharist…” our Parish welcomes you.  Join us at the table of the Word and the table of the Eucharist.  Connect.  Engage.  Welcome to Our Lady of the Snows Parish.
