Church of Our Mother of Perpetual Help

Welcome to the Church of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, a Redemptorist Parish.  We are located in the heart of beautiful Lancaster County in historic Ephrata, Pennsylvania.

Today, March 16, 2020, effective immediately until further notice, Bishop Ronald W. Gainer, out of great concern for the health of the faithful and in union with the Bishops of Pennsylvania, has temporarily suspended all daily and weekend Masses in the Diocese of Harrisburg. Additionally, Bishop Gainer has suspended all public liturgies and devotions, and has asked that all churches and chapels be closed, including all perpetual adoration chapels.   If you have any questions, please call the Parish office at 717-733-9641 or St. Clement’s at 717-733-6596.

About Redemptorist Priests

The Redemptorist priests of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer (CSSR) have been serving the Ephrata community since 1914.  Following the footsteps of their patron and founder, St. Alphonsus Liguori, the Redemptorists have chosen to “follow the example of Jesus Christ by preaching the Word of God to the poor.”

We welcome all and invite you to join us in holy worship and prayer.

Sincerely your pastor,
Fr. John Murray, CSSR
