Mission

The Parish of Our Lady of Pompeii was founded in 1892 by the missionaries of St. Charles / Scalabrinians.

The Parish was founded to care for the spiritual and social needs of Italian immigrants who came to America in search of religious, social, and economic freedom. Today, through strong liturgical, educational and social programs, Our Lady of Pompeii Parish continues the mandate given to the Missionaries of St. Charles by their founder, Blessed John Baptist Scalbrini to continue to care for all migrants as they journey toward the Kingdom of God. In particular Our Lady of Pompeii Parish is the home of the Italian, Filipino, and Brazilian communities.
