Our Lady’s Ambassadors

New Ministry Opportunity

The need to remain connected is more important than ever before. This new ministry will serve as a way to reach every family in the parish when the need arises. Our Lady’s Ambassadors will periodically receive a list of families to call, to pray for them or reach out to them about important events. We expect to need our Ambassadors about 4 times each year. We are looking for at least 80 members to answer the call to become an Ambassador for the parish and our Blessed Mother. Please contact Kristina Poirier at kpoirier@olcparish.net or call the parish office # 866-0931


Advent Resources

We still have these resources available to pick up in the commons or the parish office. Please help yourself, or grab one for a neighbor.
