Our Lady of the Lakes is your Church family. The more of us involved, the more effectively we can live as disciples and joyfully honor God!

Your involvement helps build God’s Kingdom. Today’s Church needs the gifts and talents of the laity. When we recognize that all we have comes from God, how easy is it to offer gratitude by giving back? Your talents, gifts and treasure are needed to help make our parish vibrant.  Take the Spiritual Gifts Assessment if you are unsure.

Everyone from young to old and retired is needed. We want your experience to be safe and rewarding. Therefore, Safe Environment and ministry specific training is required. In addition, you are encouraged to read the Creating A Safe Environment newsletter, published quarterly in English and Spanish.

    • Anyone who ministers specifically to children, youth and vulnerable adults must take an online Creating a Safe Environment (CASE) training. This includes a background check.  Once approved, retraining is required every three years.  Training for minors must be live and does not involve a background check.
    • Additionally, all families enrolled in Faith Formation must have 3 units of safe environment training each year.
