Our Holy Father has called upon us to become “Missionary Disciples”. In an attempt to follow his proclamation, Archbishop Lori has requested that each parish have their parishioners complete a survey to determine how our church is helping us to become a “Missionary Disciple”
Annually OLC participates in the House of Hope Winter Relief Shelter Program. To help us absorb the expenditures for this Christ like venture, each year we raise funds through a festive dinner/auction. The 2015 Dinner/Auction will be on November 14, 2015. We are in need of items for the silent and live auctions. We hope that you or someone you know can help; your donations are tax deductible. Please click here to access the donation form. Thank you for your generosity!

When Jesus first noticed anyone showing any curiosity at all about Him, for example, where He lived, Jesus said: "Come and see." That is the invitation and welcome I would extend to you, Dear Reader. If there is anything you want to know about us, stop by and join us when we gather. If you want to know a family, watch them when they celebrate, when they party. When we gather for worship, to acknowledge who we are as a grateful People before a Loving God, this is when we are most what we hope to be.
For Jesus to have had such a powerfully permanent effect on so many people, He must have had an awesomely "attractive" personality. May we presume that something of this "attraction" is what prompted you to check us out from this safe distance behind your PC?
We hope the next step is liberating for you. Come to search the Truth with us; it is this Truth that Jesus promised will set us all free! What a marvelous gift! Welcome!
