Russo’s Reflections 05-28-2017

I thoroughly enjoyed the 80’s Glow Party last weekend. The evening was filled with excitement, laughter, high energy, great food, and fellowship! If you were unavailable to attend this year, make every effort to attend next year! This event is the annual fundraiser for the OLC Education Foundation, which helps finance all the educational programs in our parish community. Because of your generosity the follow ministries and programs are funded through the OLCEF:
♦ Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
♦ Faith Formation
♦ OLC School (PK-8th)
♦ Bible Studies
♦ Marriage Prep
♦ Baptismal Prep
♦ Lighthouse Catholic Media CD’s
♦ Distribution of Books at Christmas

The OLC Education Foundation truly makes a difference in the lives of our adults and children. Please continue to give generously to the education foundation.

I would like to thank Amy Hartman, Jennifer Jakary, MaryBeth Readwin,
Lori Warwick, the committee members and the many volunteers who gave of their time and talent in organizing this event so masterfully that made it a grand success. Well done, good and faithful servants!

Memorial Day weekend begins the season of summer and extreme busyness
for all of us. Over the next few months our calendars will be filled with numerous events and activities, such as, graduation parties, weddings, family gatherings, sporting events, vacations, etc. As we prepare to enjoy the summer months with family and friends, let us begin by remembering all who have gone before us to eternal life, especially the men and women who died in military service so that we may continue to live in freedom. Please join us Monday, May 29 at 9:00 am as we celebrate our Memorial Day Mass, thanking God for the gift of freedom and praying for all of our brothers and sisters who have gone before us to eternal life.

Have a safe and blessed Memorial Day!
Fr. Tony
