Welcome to the family of Our Lady's Immaculate Heart Church (OLIH)! We are glad that you are here!

Second, here are some of the things you can expect from us after we recieve your registration:
- A member of our welcome ministry will contact you. They have a gift for you and will offer to give you a tour the building.
