To joyfully witness to our faith while ministering to the needs of the English speaking Catholic community of greater São Paulo and reaching out to the needy.


Dear Friends:

We welcome you to Chapel, Our Lady Help of Christians Parish, and hope that we can become good friends.  We want to share with you a small part of our history; to explain what we are because of what we do; how we will try our best to help you and your family adjust to your new home and lifestyle; and to encourage and motivate you to join us to make a difference.  Our small size and intimate, family atmosphere facilitates new friendships while fulfilling your spiritual needs.

Coffee hours after Sunday morning Mass is an ongoing tradition here and often helps make friendships that grow for many years and spread to many countries.

Our hope is to help you spend your time here in Brazil — be it a few months or a lifetime — as a growing experience in Faith, in Love and in Justice.  Whether you can join us only occasionally or would like to participate fully in our parish programs, you are very welcome at Chapel, Our Lady Help of Christians Parish.

Let us pray for one another.
