Welcome from Pastor
Welcome to Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Community! Welcome and hospitality are key virtues in a Christian community, and we hope that you will always feel welcome here, whether as a visitor or as a parishioner. Please join us for Sunday or weekday Mass. As you continue to visit our website, I hope you will find a ministry, club, opportunity for service or an organization that interests you.
The community is blessed with many generous, interested and involved volunteers. We have a very dedicated staff. The parish priests belong to a religious community, the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales and have ministered at the parish for over fifty years. Because of the Oblate presence, the spirituality of St. Francis de Sales is one of the unique features of our parish community. St. Francis believes that everyone is called to holiness, and that our holiness is found in doing the ordinary things of daily life with great love. He also asks us simply to be who we are and to be that perfectly well.
This year, our Salesian theme is “Transforming the ordinary with great love.” We are trying to live that as a church and school staff, as students in our school and CCF religious formation program and throughout the year’s parish activities and programs.
Thank you for taking the time to visit us. Please review our calendar of events to find parish activities that interest you and then come join us to be a part of them. Feel free to contact me or a member of our staff if we can be of assistance. I pray that God bless you and those whom you love!
Rev. Matthew J. Hillyard, OSFS
