Welcome to Our Lady of the Lake!

Take a few moments to look around the web site... we welcome all visitors and pray your time in the Ozarks is restful. To our parishioners, hopefully you will find many items of interest. Everyone is invited to see what is happening at the parish: this week's bulletin and parish calendar and join in the many activities as time allows.  

1st Prize $20,000 Cash & 2nd Prize $5,000 Cash & much more
Believe it or not, but it has been 12 ½ years since we have been in our Church and, other than some normal cleaning, nothing has been done (the Church was blessed on November 30, 2002). The carpets are getting to a point of no return. Our 50 lights in the worship space have ballasts that are no longer manufactured…so, eventually, they will not work. There are some beyond normal “fix-up” items that need to be addressed…the window sills in the Little Chapel have some erosion and rot in them. All of these little things add up to big expense items. 
Thanks for your support of "Keep the Light On" 2015 Drawing, Father Rick

1. A joy ever new, a joy which is shared.

2. The great danger in today’s world, pervaded as it is by consumerism, is the desolation and anguish born of a complacent yet covetous heart, the feverish pursuit of frivolous pleasures, and a blunted conscience. Whenever our interior life becomes caught up in its own interests and concerns, there is no longer room for others, no place for the poor. God’s voice is no longer heard, the quiet joy of his love is no longer felt, and the desire to do good fades. This is a very real danger for believers too. Many fall prey to it, and end up resentful, angry and listless. That is no way to live a dignified and fulfilled life; it is not God’s will for us, nor is it the life in the Spirit which has its source in the heart of the risen Christ.

3. I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting him encounter them; I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day. No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her, since “no one is excluded from the joy brought by the Lord”.

Meditation: What is the greatest act of love which one can give for the sake of another? Jesus defines friendship - the mutual bond of trust and affection which people choose to have for one another - as the willingness to give totally of oneself - even to the point of laying down one's life for a friend. How is such love possible or even desirable? God made us in love for love. That is our reason for being, our purpose for living, and our goal in dying.

Why Pentecost?

Today is the Great Feast of Pentecost. Fifty days past Easter. We remember it as the day the Holy Spirit descended upon the Disciples. Next to Easter and Christmas, Pentecost is probably considered the most important liturgical feast for us a Catholic Christians.

I appreciate each of you in your prayers for me and for my family, especially my Sister, Cheri. As a family, we recognize the power of prayer. Your prayer during the time of my Dad's death gave all of us hope and comfort.
