Are there times when you want a change of pace for your Sunday service? I thought that a bilingual mass would be a combination of English and Spanish. Today, the 31st Sunday in Ordinary Time was indeed a bilingual mass, but not what you may expect, for it was English and Vietnamese. Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church is a
On with the virtual tour: There is ample parking and a few doors to get into the foyer of church. Up the stairs and you'll enter into a large foyer that is chocked-full of books, posters, periodicals and more. Entering through another set of doors and you're in church. The doors led me into the front left side of church just before the altar. To the left of the entrance is the altar with the seating for the priest first. Behind the seating is a statue of Mary in an lighted niche and Joseph statue is on the right side. The tabernacle is just below the cross which is a part of a beautiful painting. Jesus makes the painting look three dimensional because He is a very large figurine along with the "INRI" plaque. There are four blue and white religious flags framing the tabernacle and crucifix area, with two on each side. The podium is in front of the Joseph statue. Exactly in the center of the altar is the table and in front of the table is a beautiful incense burning bowl.
To the right of the altar is the Baptismal Font with stained glass windows behind. There are a few adoration areas off to the right of the font and have beautiful statues, candles and kneelers. The balcony is in the back of the church and it's also where the musicians are located. The singers for todays service were blessed with incredible voices. The Stations of the Cross plaques are located on the left wall above the doors. Above those plaques are many square windows that allow plenty of light to come enter.
Now it's time to humbly thank all the beautiful people of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church. Your spirit of love, service and hospitality refreshes my heart and eased my mind and spirit. May our Lord continue to bless you and hole you in His graces. Thank you for your generous spirit and hospitality.
