Welcome to our website!  I hope you like what you see. With it, you will learn more about our parish and the Catholic Faith.


ADVENT SRIPTURE SERIES

Patricia (Pat) Platt would like to invite you to ready your hearts for the Great Feast of the Incarnation, Christmas. There will be a three night Advent Series on the Scripture readings on Wednesdays, December 4, 11 and 18 at 7 pm in the Rectory Conference Room. The Scripture readings during this time invite us to the themes of HOPE, PEACE, JOY AND LOVE. The four candles that we light on the Advent Wreath symbolizes these themes as well. God speaks to each heart differently. We invite you to one hour on a Wednesday evening to explore just how our Good and Gracious God just might be speaking to your heart. Peace and all Good!


The Giving Tree Project

OLC Parish Family

We will again be sponsoring the Giving Tree Project. You are asked to take an ornament off the Christmas tree located in the Church. Buy the gift written on the ornament, tape the ornament on the outside of the package and return it to the church under the tree. (Please do not wrap the gifts; the organizations need to see the gifts so they can distribute them properly. Also, for the gift cards, please put them in an envelope and make sure the amount of the card is visible.)

 All gifts are to be returned by

Sunday, December 8th

This year we are helping the Bernardine Center, Catholic Social Services, our neighbors Don Guanella Village and Parishioners.

Thank you for your generosity. Any questions – please call Joan at the Rectory.

PLEASE:  NEW ITEMS ONLY


 OLC’s Annual Christmas Craft and Bake Sale

December 14th and 15th

After all Masses in the Church Hall. Yummy baked goods for your Holidays, and craft items that our Social Committee has been making all Fall! They are perfect gifts for stocking stuffers, teacher gifts, bus driver gifts, gifts for neighbors, friends and family members.

Children can also write their letter to Santa and mail it in our special mailbox.
