May the peace of the Lord be with you. Welcome to the website of Our Lady of the Mountains Roman Catholic Parish!
We are glad you stopped by for a visit. Our website is a “work in progress” as we refine and add to our format on a continual basis. We have a link to access our Sunday Bulletin, and we will have articles and feature stories each month with plenty of pictures. Plus we have links to the Archdiocese of Baltimore and the Catholic Review (our Archdiocesan bi-weekly newspaper), so we welcome you to visit us often to see what’s new.
We especially invite you to share in our worship at our daily and weekend Masses so we can meet in person. There are plenty of other activities going on in our great parish that you are welcome to attend. Please call or e-mail us for more information. We’d enjoy meeting you.
We invite you to share your comments and ideas with us as to how we can reach you and reach out to you better.
We, the parishioners of Our Lady of the Mountains Catholic Community, in union with the Archdiocese of Baltimore are called together by Jesus Christ to evangelize, worship, and serve as a community of faith. May the Holy Spirit be our inspiration and Mary our model of grace.
We invite you to worship with us, serve with us and share God’s “work in progress” here in Western Maryland.
Here you will find all the current happenings going on in and around our five parishes as well as noteworthy articles.
Lenten Food & Faith “Unity in Diversity”
Casual and Informal evening for Catholic Adults of all ages (and their friends). Learn what the Church offers to help us live happier, more spiritually fulfilled lives.
Enjoy a chance to share faith in a comfortable atmosphere!
You can view the full CORRECTED flyer HERE about this informative series.
Also please note that this is a corrected flyer. The flyer from the bulletin had Rabbi Sniderman’s name misspelled and the dates were Rabbi Sniderman for March 5th and Dr. Shakil for March 12th but those dates have switched.
Dr. Shakil will be presenting on March 5th and Rabbi Sniderman will be on March 12th.
To make sure there is enough place please call or email to reserve your space by noon on Monday, March 4th!
If you have any questions please see the contact information on the flyer.
Our Lady of the Mountains Parish invites you to view Archbishop Lori’s annual appeal message. The Archbishop reckons select programs supported by the Annual Appeal and he gives the programs in Mountain Maryland first place. He acknowledges our paucity of priests and applauds and supports our creative inclusion of lay persons to continue to grow robust ministries of service to the community. He also singles out Bishop Walsh Catholic School as a concrete example of bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to families in the area, opening minds and touching hearts. And the video even includes pictures of familiar faces and places. Enjoy this short video and support the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal by calling the parish office.
In Loving Memory of
Fr. Bernard Finerty, OFM Cap.
July 31, 1935 – January 23, 2015
Our Lady of the Mountains will celebrate the life and ministry of Fr. Bernie
on the weekend of February 21st and 22nd, 2015
All Mass Intentions that weekend will be for Fr. Bernard/
There will be receptions held in the Parish Halls following all Masses that weekend so that parishioners can gather to share their stories of Fr. Bernard and celebrate the ministry he so lovingly gave to our Parish.
Our Lady of the Mountains Parish is pleased to announce a new addition to our website called “Meet Your Fellow Parishioners.” We will begin by featuring our longtime (and in many cases, lifelong!) parishioners. We are grateful to those who have agreed to participate and hope to feature someone from each of the five church sites every couple of months. We hope you enjoy getting to know these extraordinary members of our parish family – they are treasures among us!
We are honored to introduce, as our second feature Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Zembower.
