Everyone is invited to see what is happening at the parish this week and join in the many activities as time allows.  

It’s time for a new Parish Photo Directory:
We are partnering with Life Touch to publish a new Parish Photo Directory this fall. 
Do you know that 154 new households have joined Our Lady of the Lake since our last directory in 2011!
If you are numbered in our “new” members, please join in having your photo taken… if you were included in the 2011 directory, once again please have your photo included. If your photo was not included in the last directory, please consider your photo in the 2014 directory!
Portrait settings will be 
September 9th ~ 13th and
September 16th ~ 20th
