Although Our Lady
of Hope Parish - with the Chapel of the Assumption - was only recently
incorporated as a parish in the year 2000, our history is much older.
Begun in 1834, the Catholic faith was established in Whitehall at
St. Anthony’s Church. Within a few short decades, the faith flourished
and, in 1868, our community established the parishes of Our Lady
and Notre Dame des Victoires.
St. Ann’s Church,
originally established as a mission in 1880, has faithfully served
Catholics of Fort Ann for over 125 years. Nestled between Whitehall
and Hudson Falls, this small parish community now boasts a lively
faith and small-parish living.
Together, both parishes of Our Lady
of Hope and of St. Ann’s Church, continue today to provide a home in which
all Catholics are able to share their worship, their faith, and
the presence of God in our midst.
Come Share These Great Blessings!
