Altar Society Volunteers Needed
We are looking for volunteers to join the Altar Society. Duties include: pick up church linens, wash, iron and return them to the sacristy. We currently have eleven members, which means you would be responsible once every eleven weeks. The more members we have, the longer in between obligations.
If interested, please call the Parish Office at 631.661.3224 option 2 and leave your name and number for Joyce Petersen.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Bring your prayer and creativity together in a gift of love. See our bulletin for the next meeting time and date.
New Ministry – “Baby Blanket Bunch”
The Baptism Program and the Prayer Shawl Ministry recently introduced the Baby Blanket Bunch! We are hoping to give a blessed, white baby blanket to each child baptized in the parish. This gift to the family will be a sign of this special day on which we welcomed our newest members into our parish family.
We always need people to knit or crochet the white baby blankets. The blankets can be brought to the Prayer Shawl Ministry meeting at 9:30am on the first Wednesday of each month in the Parish Center or dropped off at the Rectory. We also need donations of white wool for the blankets which can be dropped off at the rectory or the meeting as well. Please share your special creative talent, generosity and love with the youngest of our parish.
Secular Franciscan Order
The Secular Franciscan Order was established by St. Francis of Assisi more than 800 years ago. Our purpose is to bring the Gospel to life where we live and where we work. We look for ways to embrace the Gospel in our lives and try to help others to do likewise. Secular Franciscans are men and women, married and single, living in secular life. We have jobs, homes, cars, hobbies and families. Francis founded our third order with the intention of having men and women who can evangelize in everyday life.
Would you like to become closer to Jesus through St. Francis of Assisi? Come to one of our monthly meetings and discover how you can bring the Gospel to life every day!
The Secular Franciscans meet here at OLL on the Second Sunday of each month from 1:30pm–4:30pm in the Parish Center. For more information, please contact Dan at: 631.432.0453.
