Family Lenten Reconciliation Service: Monday, March 27th at 7:00PM. Several priests will be available to hear individual confessions after a short prayer service that evening. The prayer service will give us time to examine our consciences and recite the act of contrition together prior to the individual confessions. Preparation for the reception of the sacrament for the first time takes place in the fall. Please contact andrea@olfparish.com for more information.

Faith Formation students in grades 6, 7, and 8 are invited to help as greeters, ushers, or singers who will sing with our Middle School Choir under the direction of our Music Minister, Karen Froehly, for the Family Lenten Reconciliation Service. Please contact andrea@olfparish.com for more information.

The annual Easter Egg hunt is coming up—Volunteers Needed: for children’s games and egg hunts. Donations of individually wrapped candy are greatly appreciated (no Nuts, please!). Please drop all donations off by April 5th. We will have specially marked boxes for the goodies!!

Family Worship Weekends: One week each month, instead of having the customary class times, faith formation students will be expected to attend Sunday Mass with their families. The themes of those Sunday liturgies will reflect what is being taught in the faith formation curriculum and giving you the opportunity to discuss and pray about these liturgical themes with your children during the Sunday time together and into following week. Our next Family Worship Weekend is March 26th.

Steward Cards will be available in all classrooms. Please ask your child to bring one home, fill it out and return them to the baskets at the entrances to the Church. The “Steward Cards” are a blessing to read. To see these wonderful works, please see our poster in the breezeway.
