All youth and teens grades 6-12 are invited to Kateri Lodge on Wednesday, June 21 from 6-8 PM to spend time with Sisters Katharine Rose and Mary Concepta from the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.

Let’s Go to Bat for Kids

Join Catholic Charities West Michigan in a celebration of family at Let’s Go To Bat For Kids 2017! Watch the CCWM Padres take on the Media Giants in a competitive game of softball.

The event is free (except for a $7 per vehicle parking) and includes children’s games and activities along the concourse, local mascots, and a fun night at the ballpark! Gates open at 5:30pm., opening ceremonies at 6:30pm, and the game starts at 7:00pm.

This family fun event raises money to support the foster care and adoption programs of Catholic Charities of West Michigan. CCWM protected more that 400 children last year by placing them in safe foster homes. It helped 66 children find forever, loving homes
through adoption.

To get your free tickets, visit Let’s fill
the stands, celebrate family and go to bat for kids!

Father’s Day Choir

Men of OLC! Please join other Men of OLC and their sons as we sing on Sunday June 18 for Father’s Day at both Masses. The ability to be a good singer is not required and you do not need to sing at both Masses. If you can make a joyful noise, you are welcome to join. This is a great opportunity to show that you are willing to stand up for your Lord, your Church and your family. This can be an incredible experience for you and the Mass participants. There will be a rehearsal on Tuesday June 13 at 7:00 PM at OLC. If you cannot attend the rehearsal, you can still sing on Sunday. Please contact Greg Beasley at or 893.5833 to volunteer or to get more information.
