About Us


Welcome to Our Lady of Perpetual Help!

Our Lady of Perpetual Help, commonly known as St. Mary’s, was established in 1885.

Our present church (pictured above) was built in 1992, after our old church was burned to the ground in an arson fire, October 29, 1989.

We are the only Catholic Church in Albany, Oregon.

We have about 1400 registered families.

If you are new to OLPH, we welcome you.

Please contact the parish office (541-926-1449) to register.

If you have questions, please contact any of OLPH Staff or email: stmarysoffice_albany@comcast.net. God Bless!
