Thanksgiving Day Mass :: November 23 at 9:30am

Come together to celebrate the goodness of the Lord at our Mass on Thanksgiving Day!

This is an opportunity to take time out to reflect on the many good things that have happened in our lives during the last year, but we must also remember those who are in need due to the hurricanes and earthquakes they have experienced this year.

We ask that you remember to bring a non-perishable food item to the Thanksgiving Mass to be a blessing to those in need. These items will be kept in your pew until the offertory procession, at which time ushers will help direct you.  A basket will also be available if you prefer to give a monetary contribution.

We will give thanks as God’s holy and blessed people!


The Parish Office will close on Wednesday, November 22 at 3:00pm in observance of Thanksgiving. The Office will re-open on Friday, November 24 at 9:00am.


Share the Light of Christ Pageant

We will be having a Parish Christmas Pageant on Sunday, December 17 at 4:00pm.

We need children and adults of all ages to help tell the story of Jesus coming at Christmas time. There will be very little preparation and rehearsal needed, but we need YOU to help tell the story.

Please come to an Information Meeting on Tuesday, November 28 at 7:00pm in the Parish School Media Room.

There will be signs posted to direct you to the Media Room.


Book of the Names of the Deceased

Throughout the month of November, a special book has been placed in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel, inscribed with the names of all who have died in our Parish Family over the past year.

In prayer, let us remember all of these men and women who have gone before us, “marked with the sign of faith.” May our united prayers help us to better understand and appreciate our faith in Christ, our risen Lord, who conquers sin and death and brings new life to all!


Thanksgiving at OLL

It’s November … and Thanksgiving is fast approaching.

Once again, we ask our generous parish family and friends to help those less fortunate by making a donation to Outreach. We would like to suggest that when you are shopping for your Thanksgiving dinner, you buy a duplicate item for one of our families in need and bring it to Parish Outreach for distribution. Any donations of Thanksgiving food, including turkeys or hams would be gratefully accepted. If your budget has room to donate a complete dinner, we are working with families of 2-8 members.

We’ll be in the Parish Center on Sunday, November 19 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm to accept donations. We ask that all donations be brought to Outreach by Monday, November 20.

Thank you for your help.


OLL School Annual Christmas Wreath Sale

Wreaths will be available for purchase on November 25-26 and December 2-3 after Masses and at the Rectory garage.

Thank you for your support of our Parish School!
