Your spare change can make a big difference in the lives of mothers and babies!

At Immaculate Heart of Mary and Immaculate Conception the “Bottle Drive” will take place again this year to benefit the Two Hearts Pregnancy Care Clinic in Torrington.  Baby bottles will be available to you to take home and use as a bank on Mother’s Day weekend. Please fill up your bottles with change or bills and return them to church on Father’s Day weekend.  (Tax receipts available for checks only-payable to Our Lady of Hope)

Two Hearts Pregnancy Care Center in Torrington is a place where woman and teens can find hope, help and life-affirming support, reflecting the pro-life teachings of the Catholic Church.

Thank you for your support.


RCIA Candidates become full members of the Catholic Church.

At the Easter Vigil on Saturday, April 19, Our Lady of Hope Parish welcomed Glynis Powers and Rebecca Roben as full members of the Catholic Church as they received the sacraments of Confirmation and First Eucharist.  They prepared for this wondrous event by attending weekly classes from September through April in the parish RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) program.

Our parish is enriched by their faith and their commitment, and we welcome them with joy!



The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. This faith formation program is available to non-Catholic adults and young adults past the age of reasoning who wish to become members of the Catholic Church, and to Catholic adults and young adults past the age of reasoning who have not yet received the sacraments of First Eucharist and Confirmation.  Classes meet on a weekly basis, and can be begun at any time.  Contact Father Michael (860-379-5215) if you are interested. Young adults under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18.

Online Giving Message

We are proud to announce that Our Lady of Hope is keeping up with technology, and now has the ability for online giving.  Contributions can be made to the parish online safety via an encrypted website.  Online giving makes it easy when you are unable to attend Mass.  It's real simple to do.  Here are two simple ways:

     1.  Sign up here at the website.  Click on the "online giving" button that is found on the home page.  For the first time user, just click on "create new account".  This is a one-time account set-up.  This allows you to make donations to the church with options as a one-time gift or recurring.

     2.  The second way for accessing online giving is from your phones. Simply download the app for free from Apple or Google stores.  The name of the app is "Online Giving by Our Sunday Visitor".  From there it's the same login process as the website.

IMPORTANT:  All current IHOM online givers please sign up on the Our Lady of Hope Parish portal and cancel your current account on the IHOM portal.
