Pastor’s Desk

Dear Friends,
I have been seeing a number of new faces at Mass on the weekends. Several people have stopped and stated they liked what we are doing at OLG. May I invite all who are attending our parish Masses on the weekends to become “registered” members of our parish.
Why register in our parish? Through your participation you continue to help a community of faith grow. You gain services when you need them, such as Baptism, Visitation of the Sick, and a place for a funeral. You will receive updated information regarding the parish by “email” or calling post (a robo-call system).
How do I register? Please stop by the Parish Office! Office hours are Monday – Friday from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm or on Saturday from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. I look forward to welcoming you to our spiritual home.

Little Church Project
The work continues with the Parish Strategic Planning process. We will be meeting regarding the “Disciple Maker Index” on May 18th and 19th, and we look forward to sharing the results with you.

2016 Annual Catholic Appeal
The Office of Faith Formation includes the ministries of Childhood Formation, Youth and Young Adult Formation and Family Formation. They co-ordinate with parishes and Catholic Schools to bring spiritual renewal and opportunities to serve and grow in relationship with the Lord. Your gift to the ACA helps to support these important pastoral ministries. “Thank you” to the 227 donors who have made pledges totaling $57,532. This is 65% of our goal.

The Lord’s Kitchen
Please keep in your prayers our OLG volunteers who will be serving the meal at the Lord’s Kitchen on Monday, April 25th. Our volunteers thank you for your donations for the clients of the Lord’s Kitchen.
