Welcome to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church!

We would be delighted if you took a few moments to explore the rich diversity of our parish, ministries and activities. The center of our parish life is the Eucharist, and we heartily invite you to join us for Sunday Mass.

Following the current Diocesan Directives,
FACE COVERINGS ARE TO BE WORN BY THOSE IN ATTENDANCE AT MASS.
REGULAR SCHEDULE OF PUBLIC MASSES CONTINUE (4:30 p.m., 9 a.m. & 11 a.m.) but will be live streamed at 4:30 p.m. (traditional music) and at 11 a.m. (contemporary music) on Facebook page.
The Masses will be available on the parish website after the live stream. Ohio Bishops have still granted DISPENSATION FROM ATTENDING SUNDAY MASS. GUIDELINES FOR THOSE ATTENDING IN PERSON:
 
1. Understanding the desire of many to return to church, it remains important for those who are at greater risk to refrain from returning until such time they feel comfortable and confident to do so.
2. Those who are symptomatic or who have been exposed to another with the virus within 14 days should not attend Mass in accordance with national, state and local health directives.
3. Parishes are encouraged to continue to live-stream Mass so that those unable to attend may maintain a spiritual connection with their local parish. Our Lady of Perpetual Help will continue to make Masses available on-line.
4. Appropriate cleaning of high use areas within the church is to be done before and after each service.
a. The pews/seating area utilized by the assembly and the ambo should be wiped down with disinfectant.
b. Holy water fonts are to remain empty until further notice.
c. Hymnals will be rotated between Masses.
d. Restrooms, door handles, push plates, and knobs are to be sanitized after each liturgy. Doors might be propped open to lessen contact.
5. Every effort to ensure appropriate physical distancing before, during, and after liturgical celebrations is required. Methods will vary depending on capacity and arrangement of church buildings.
a. Other than immediate family members/household units, worshipers should be seated six feet apart. Consider using every other pew/row for each Mass.
b. Allow for distance within each pew/row between worshipers.
6. Cry Rooms or enclosed spaces for families with small children should not be available.
7. Large gatherings before or after Mass are to be discouraged.
8. Face coverings are to be worn by those in attendance at Mass .
9. If possible, sanitizer should be made available at all entrances.
10. Presiders and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion should wash their hands before Mass, discreetly use hand sanitizer immediately before the distribution of Holy Communion, and wash their hands after Mass being mindful not to touch their face, eyes or nose.
11. Pastors and liturgical ministers should make every effort to continually model and encourage good hygienic practices.
12. Collection: Stationary baskets will be in the church for worshipers in which to place their offering at the beginning of Mass.
13. Distribution of Holy Communion: It is highly encouraged and strongly recommended that the reception of Holy Communion be received in the hand.
a. Holy Communion is not to be distributed with gloves, nor may it be received in the hand with gloves.
b. When approaching the minister, the communicant is to pull their mask (if wearing one) below their chin. The minister, after saying, “Body of Christ,” is to carefully place the host into the hand of the communicant avoiding any incidental contact. Communicants, after responding “Amen,” reverently place the Eucharist in their mouth and replace their mask.
