At the direction of the Archdiocese: All Churches are to remain closed until further notice, effective March 26,2020 due to Covid-19.

Let us pray for all those affected 

We, the people of Our Lady of the Visitation parish, believe in Jesus Christ and embrace His teachings.  Inspired by the Holy Spirit, we embrace His call to be the Light of the World through Word, Worship, Community Building and Service to all.


The people of Our Lady of the Visitation Church, inspired by Jesus' and Mary's example of openness to the will of God the Father and the Holy Spirit, desire to be faithful stewards of God's gifts to us; and, believe our mission is: To understand the word of God through study, To become examples of Christ's love in the world by caring for one another through communal sharing and service, and to celebrate our joy of understanding and caring through sacraments and prayer.

Stay Connected to our Faith with these resources

Even though we are unable to celebrate mass together, we need your continued support to keep our parish strong. Please take a moment and give

on-line and pray for us.
