The Mission of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish is to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ by living our faith as a Catholic Community in worship, service, and support of one another.
Honoring Our Past Building Our Future UPDATES!
Let's make it reality!!
As of February 21, 2017
The moving from the church and into the Parish Hall has begun. Starting today, April 17th, 2017 items will be removed from the church and transferred to the hall for use during our celebration of the Eucharist for daily and weekend masses.
During the next 12 to 15 weeks please join us in our celebration of the Mass in the Hall. If you are physically capable of parking further away from the hall and walking please do so. This will allow those individuals that need to park close a place to park.
Please stay tuned to this side for updated pictures of the church as it goes through its transformation.

COMPLETION OF OUR HOUSING PROJECT!
On Sunday, November 6, 2016, Ms. Sara Ramos with Food For The Poor was here at OLPH to present the Catholic Men's Fellowship and Our Lady of Perpetual Help with an update on the completion of the house that we built for the Henry-Nesbeth Family.
Jim McCullough with the Catholic Men's Fellowship, presented Ms. Ramos with a donation that will be used in conjunction with other donations from Catholic Churches and Catholic organizations to build houses, vegetable and fruit gardens, a bakery and water supplies for several villages.
Our Lady's Helping Hands
Our Lady’s Helping Hands is the chance for parishioners to provide Social Ministry to our parish community and to our neighborhoods. This committee will not have regular meetings and will not take up large amounts of time. Our ‘Helping Hands’ will serve when needed in times of crisis, emergency or general necessity. This is your opportunity to use your talents to serve others. If you are interested in contributing a helping hand, please complete this survey and return it to Paula Taylor. You may drop it in the collection basket; mail it to Paula at 104 Buffalo Ave, Fairmont, WV 26554; or email it to her Paula Taylor.
(Click above to open form)
Please continue to bring in non-perishable items that will be given to those in need.
All food items being donated are to be brought to the Church, not to the office or chapel.
During the Presentation of the Gifts, our parish children will bring forth your donation. Children of all ages will be asked to participate on a scheduled basis.
Items may include canned goods of soup, vegetables and fruit, tuna, crackers, condiments, baking items such as flour, sugar, brownie mixes, snacks, juice, etc..
Thank you for your help!

Anointing of the Sick
By the sacred anointing of the sick and the prayer of the priests the whole Church commends those who are ill to the suffering and glorified Lord, that he may raise them up and save them and indeed she exhorts them to contribute to the good of the People of God
by freely uniting themselves to the Passion and death of Christ. Catechism of the Catholic Church 1499
The Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is always available for anyone who is not only in danger of death but for those who are seriously ill, for anyone preparing for surgery or a medical procedure and for those who are aged or infirmed. The sacrament may be received in church, in the home, at the hospital, or wherever circumstances dictate.
Please call the parish office at 304-623-2334 or in case of emergency call Fr. Kent at 304-374-2115 to make arrangements
for the celebration of this sacrament of healing. In the case of an emergency, please let us know in a timely manner. We will need time to get in touch with Fr. and time for his travel to the destination of need.
