Pastor's Monthly Message 

Welcome to Our Lady of Hope Parish


​Our Lady of Hope is a diverse and vibrant parish located in the Logan Neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Our parish truly represents the universal nature of the Catholic Church with our vibrant Hispanic, Filipino and Black apostolates. The parish was established in 1909 and the church building has been located on Broad Street since 1930. In 1993, the neighborhood entered a new era of our faith, with the merging of three local parishes: St. Stephen, Our Lady of the Holy Souls, and Holy Child. As these parishes came together, separate identities became one, bringing forth Our Lady of Hope Parish. Our parish is now home to over 1,000 parishoners. 

Church of the Holy Child is often referred to as the Cathedral of the North because of its massive structure. The Church was inspired by French Romanesque architecture. The steeple at 200 feet can be seen from afar in the area. Having been influenced by European Cathedral architecture, this is evident by the massive three story high marble carved altar.   We hope this website will help you to get to know Our Lady of Hope, our mission statement and the community, which is here to serve you, our parishioners and visitors. 

We hope to see you soon, 
Maligayang Pagdating
