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.

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

Meditation:  Are you prepared to be a witness, and if necessary, a martyr for Jesus Christ? John the Baptist bridged the Old and New Testaments. He is the last of the Old Testament prophets who pointed the way to the Messiah. He is the first of the New Testament witnesses and martyrs.

Meditation: Why do some find it easier while others find it harder to accept the claims which Jesus made?

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.
