Welcome to Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic Community!

ALLELUIA!  Joyous Ascension!  Rejoice in God’s infinite mercy!   Sadly not all receive this kind of mercy.  Search Social Ministry to learn more.

Our diocese is offering a webinar, with mental health professional, Dr. Roy Petitfils on 6/3 at 5PM.  He will share caution signs of anxiety and how we can best respond.  Open to anyone, but limited to the first 500 registrants.

Are there any silver linings to the dark cloud of the pandemic?  One poet/author has found one.  Enjoy!

On 5/20 Gov. Cuomo announced that houses of worship can reopen for 10 or fewer worshippers.  A memorandum from Bishop Matano also gives guidance to planning our re-opening.  That plan must include use of masks, hand and other sanitation measures and maintaining proper social distancing.  Fr.Leo devotes part of the cover of the 5/23-24 bulletin to this issue.  Continue to lift this situation up to God through your personal prayer time, asking yourself how you can be part of the solution.  Continue to  offer prayer to combat the Covid-19 pandemic.  Also, see this statement issued by the Vatican reminding us of our responsibilities, inter-connectivity and the call to solidarity.

We, your staff, will continue to

  • pray for you and the whole world
  • send by email a weekly letter which has the bulletin attached.  If you are not getting it, please call the parish office to update your information.
  • offer Children’s Liturgy of the Word via Facebook Live, Sundays at 10:30 AM
  • also offer via Facebook Live  daily Mass at 2 PM, M-F and at Noon on Saturdays and Sundays.  (You do not need to join Facebook to see this; it is open to the public.)  On Sundays at 2 PM  la Misa en Español is offered.  All Masses end with an Act of Spiritual Communion.  
  • offer The Holy Rosary  at 3 PM daily on Facebook   
  • provide a link to the weekly newsletter, The Family Zone, available, thanks in part, to your donations to the Catholic Ministries Appeal.

It’s May, a month dedicated to  our Spiritual Mother, Mary.  What have you been doing to honor her?  Email your answers to Patty.

Your safety and needs are important to us.  If you are in need of anything, please call the parish office.  (Staff are still available by email or phone.)  We will try to get you the help you seek.  You will be informed here, on our Facebook and Twitter feeds, by email and through public service announcements on TV, radio and newspapers when we will be able to gather for Mass and other elements of parish life.  We hope you will continue to practice charity by checking on your neighbors, offering prayers and supporting us with your offerings which can be sent through US Mail or online.

If you wish to receive Reconciliation & Penance, a sacrament that needs to be celebrated annually (at least), please contact one of the priests to make an appointment.

Our diocese has made many resources available to us, especially now.  By making a donation to the Catholic Ministries Appeal this work can continue.

 

 

 

 

 

 

God bless you!
