Next Friday we will be hosting the praise and worship team, The Well. They are a group of young adult Catholics who travel to different parishes leading the community in contemporary praise music, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and an exhortation on the Word of God. We are blessed to have them come to OLMC and share their love of God and talents with us. What they do is very similar to what Life Teen calls XLT nights. It is a time to worship the Lord in the Spirit and allow Him to move in powerful ways among us.READ MORE
Miguel Nuñez, our new Youth Minister, has settled in and is making plans to restart a youth ministry here at OLMC. We will be using the Life Teen/Edge models for both high school and junior high students. Our Sunday 5:00pm Mass will be the liturgical focus for the high schoolers, so those who attend that Mass can expect the music to be a little more upbeat and (hopefully) attractive to the teens.
To be successful in evangelizing and discipling our young people, Miguel will need several volunteers for the core teams, preparing meals, helping with logistics, etc. If you want to be a part of this outreach to the youth of our parish, please contact Miguel at firstname.lastname@example.org.READ MORE
Next week is the Feast of Corpus Christi, where we give thanks to God for granting us the Gift of the Holy Eucharist. It is also the beginning of the three-year Eucharistic Revival initiative, sponsored by the American Bishops. The purpose of the Revival is to fortify us against the storm we are facing in the culture and our Church by uniting us once again around the source and summit of our faith--the Holy Eucharist. We will keep you informed as the process unfolds. You can also sign up on the website to find out more and to receive updates directly:READ MORE
