The Meaning of TRUE JOY

Yourself

 

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.

Take & Eat Volunteers Welcome and Needed

The Take and Eat Ministry is looking for volunteers to serve as drivers. This service requires a minimal time commitment of less than 2 hours on the fourth Sunday month and accomplishes the wonderful job of bringing much needed meals to homebound Holyoke residents. Even if you can’t commit to every month, you can volunteer to be a back-up driver who fills in for unavailable drivers. If interested, please contact Regis Belanger at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .

Also needed are more people to serve on the dessert committee. Each volunteer is responsible for providing two dozen individual desserts (homemade or store bought) approximately 3 times per year.  This is a perfect volunteer opportunity for any young person who is looking to fulfill community service hours.For more information and to volunteer, please email Donna St. Laurent at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Finally, we thank you for your generous support of this ministry and look forward to the continued to being able to continue our work with your continued financial support in the upcoming special collection.
