We’re so glad you have come to visit! Our prayer is that we are able to serve you in some way. We would love to hear from you through our contact form, and we’d love to see you at Mass. There is a Hospitality Table in the Narthex and after each weekend Mass there is somebody there to assist you. If you have questions about becoming a part of a ministry at Our Lady of the Hills, or are looking for a bulletin, we can help with that too.
Our Lady of the Hills Roman Catholic Church is inspired by the Holy Spirit and formed by the Gospel, under the patronage of Mary, the Mother of Jesus. Our mission is to preach and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As one family under God, the Father, we welcome all who come to us and are particularly mindful of those in need.

FAST & ABSTINENCE IN LENT
Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence.
For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.
