OUR LADY OF GRACE PARISH

“Celebrating Catholic Life Through Worship and Service”

Mission Statement – We see ourselves as the heralds of God’s love for people and believe we are called to serve those in need. We commit ourselves to knowing Jesus Christ in the Breaking of the Bread and from this central experience, we live that faith among others as the Body of Christ in northern Baltimore County. We believe that “Faith without works is dead,” (James 2:26) and therefore, that worship without service cannot be true worship. Worship and service are at the very heart of our mission; they constitute who we are.

Vision – “God calls the people of Our Lady of Grace Parish to be a welcoming, worshiping community of faith, hope and love. Through His Spirit, the Lord Jesus lives in those who believe and reaches into our world with His saving message and His healing love.”

Mission – “Worship and service are at the very heart of our mission; they constitute who we are.

Our Welcoming

Parish Welcome Orientation – Our Lady of Grace welcomes new parishioners with open arms. To that end, a Welcome Orientation is held several times a year. During that meeting, Pastoral Team members and the Welcome Committee provide an overview of the parish and all that it offers. Children’s activities are available during the orientation.

Parishioners – “Inviting. Welcoming. Vibrant. Thriving. Inspiring. Calming. A Beacon of Faith.” These are a few of the words our members use to describe Our Lady of Grace.

Parish Boundaries – With boundaries that span from Belfast Road north to the Pennsylvania line, and from Carroll County on the west to Harford County on the east, Our Lady of Grace has become a beacon of faith to a growing number of people in northern Baltimore County. Of course, all are welcome, regardless of your address. Some of our parishioners, for example, live in Pennsylvania’s southern York County.

A few of our Parish Events: – Periodic social events include an annual Wine Tasting, fundraising socials, such as a Wine, Champagne and Spirits Tasting Event in January, Beat the Blahs, Grace Our Table hospitality following various weekend Masses, and Blessing of Animals in October to name a few.
