-Our Lady of the Valley Parish Mission Statement
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
It’s time for our Parish’s Annual Stewardship Drive. On behalf of Msgr. Paul Rohling, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your past and continued generosity and kindness. God gives us many blessings in our lives. As Catholic Christians, we are called to share these blessings and I am asking that you consider sharing a part of your blessings with our church family during this stewardship drive.
During this past year, you have given so much to Our Lady of the Valley Church. Your love and generosity are evident in the improvements and repairs that have been possible through your 2017 donations.
Please reflect and pray about this upcoming 2018 pledge to our church. You can mail the enclosed pledge card this month or simply drop it in the weekly collection basket. We encourage you to please return your pledge card, marked with what you are able to pledge for your family. We would like 100% participation.
God bless you for your generosity. Thanking you in advance.
With love and prayers,
Father Liju Paul Parambeth

Bishop Baker's remarks regarding the Sunday, Christmas and New Year’s Day Obligations
Christmas is always a Holy Day of Obligation, even when it falls on Saturday or Monday, and it is a distinct obligation from that of Sunday. Two obligations means two Masses to fulﬁll them. Parishioners should be instructed that they should go to both a Sunday and a Christmas Mass this year on that weekend.
Parishioners can fulﬁll their Fourth Sunday of Advent and Christmas obligations by attending one of the following combinations of Masses:
- Saturday evening and Sunday evening*
- Saturday evening and Monday morning*
- Sunday morning and Sunday evening*
- Sunday evening and Monday morning*
*It is not the text of the Mass that counts, but attending a Mass within the time-frame for completing the obligation.
The Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God (Monday, January 1, 2018} is NOT a Holy Day of Obligation this year.
