God could have saved us in any number of ways, but he chose the hardest way… to set aside the glory of his divinity and enter the world as a baby in order to die on the cross to redeem us from within our own humanity.

Volunteering for OLOL? New to the Parish or School and want to Volunteer?
There are lots of way to volunteer with OLOL...if your volunteer work involves working with children (sports, school activities, scouts, children's liturgy) or working with adults in need (homebound, St. Vincent de Paul, etc.) we would love you to assist. However, you must attend a Protecting God's Children Workshop and complete necessary paperwork prior to volunteering. You are required to attend the workshop once, but paperwork is required for each parish location for which you volunteer. Sign up for a workshop today! Any questions, please contact the Child Safety Coordinator for OLOL, Deb McCarthy at 726-6200.

The practices of fasting and abstinence during Lent help us focus on what is truly important in our lives. Abstinence means not eating meat and is obligatory for all Catholics over the age of 14. Fasting means one full meal a day with two smaller meals and nothing in between (liquids are permitted). Fasting is obligatory for all Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59. Ash Wednesday (February 14) and Good Friday (March 30) are days of both fasting and abstinence. All other Fridays in Lent are days of abstinence alone. No Catholics will lightly excuse themselves from these time-honored penances.
Act of Contrition
“Oh my God I am heartily sorry for having offended thee. And I detest all my sins because I dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell, but most of all because they offend thee my God, who art all good and worthy of all my love. I firmly
resolve, with the help of thy grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.”
Prayer of St. Patrick
“Christ be with me, Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me, Christ to comfort and restore me. Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ in quiet, and in danger, Christ in hearts of all that love me, Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.”
