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

Our Lady of the Lake parish is excitedly planning and preparing for 13 high school and college students to attend World Youth Day 2016 with Pope Francis. You can help make this dream a reality (pun intended) through helping a fundraising project that can benefit you as well.

Meditation: What is God's intention for our state in life, whether married or single? Jesus deals with the issue of divorce by taking his hearers back to the beginning of creation and to God's plan for the human race. In Genesis 2:23-24 we see God's intention and ideal that two people who marry should become so indissolubly one that they are one flesh. That ideal is found in the unbreakable union of Adam and Eve. They were created for each other and for no one else. They...

Meditation: Whose glory do you seek? There can be no share in God's glory without the cross. When Jesus prophesied his own betrayal and crucifixion, it did not make any sense to his disciples because it did not fit their understanding of what the Messiah came to do. And they were afraid to ask further questions!

Love Wins

Love Wins

Since the Supreme Court of the United States made their decision allowing same-sex couples to marry, a number of people have asked me about this sign that I have on the Ambo. As many of you can see, it says: “Love Wins”. Because of this sign, people have asked if I am a supporter of same-sex marriage.
