To all the Groups Leaders

It’s very important you receive permission from the pastor Fr. John before you invite a Priest even one from the Diocese. No priest should step in the OLA Parish without Fr. John’s permission.

Please leave the Church in good order and doubly check that the exit doors are properly locked; bear in mind the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.

Thanks

FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK…

The Church basement is very well painted. Your cooperation is absolutely important to keep the place nice and beautiful. We ask all parishioners and groups to
make an extra effort to maintain the place neat and clean especially the bathrooms. Its everybody’s job to participate in the clean up.

The Tree of Life Plaque is mounted in the rear of the Church. There are quite a number of people who have made but didn’t fulfill their pledges. We ask them to
complete or finish their pledge. We want to emphasize that those who have not paid their pledge are not included in this memorial. We memorialized those parishioners who pledged between $500 and $2,000 in a picture frame which soon will be displayed next to the Tree of Life Plaque. It is also an opportunity for others to make a donation and add the names of their loved ones on the Tree of Life Memorial Plaque. For more information drop by the rectory office during the office hours.

SUMMER!

No Exposition of the blessed Sacrament the first Friday and Saturday during the months of July and August. This service will return to the normal
schedule in September.

While on vacation do not forget to support our Parish. We continue to be grateful for parishioners that catchup on donations or give advance donations while they
are away for the summer weeks.

Going on vacation and you don’t want to miss Mass? Log on to www.masstimes.org for the local Catholic Church in the area.

Proper attire for Church

Please dress appropriately for Church Services. Beach attire is absolutely unacceptable. We have Air Conditioning in the Church. Remember that when you are
in Church, you are in the presence of Jesus Christ.

FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK…

In order to help and support our young adult seniors and handicap parishioners we are planning to install an elevator to the church basement. The engineers have already provided us with the proposal and the design. The work will begin sometime in September.

We are sure our young adult group will grow in number and strength. If anyone wants to make a donation please call the rectory office. Thank you for your support.

To all the Groups Leaders

It’s very important you receive permission from the pastor Fr. John before you invite a Priest even one from the Diocese. No priest should step in the
OLA Parish with out Fr. John’s permission. Out of courtesy the invited priest must say hi or thanks to the Pastor. That is the normal custom followed universally by the Roman Catholic Church. Please follow it. It makes no sense that you invite someone for a good cause and you yourself do not follow simple rules and regulations. Please respect rules and regulations.

Please leave the Church in good order and doubly
check that the exit doors are properly locked.
Please bear in mind the presence of the Blessed
Sacrament. Thanks
Fr. John
