The Meaning of TRUE JOY








Always Welcoming New Parishioners!


A parish means a new family. A family where I am always welcome.  A parish means a fresh start, new beginnings.  A parish means forgiveness and new life through the sacraments.  A parish means love. Unconditional love from God forever.


Please consider everything a parish could be to you  -  and what you could be to your parish. To become a parishioner here at OLC, please call the parish office at 532-5661.
