CHOIR OPENINGS
There are openings in the choir in all voice parts for choral singers.
Prospective singers should have good sight reading skills, and a pleasant agile voice.  The commitment of time and focused energy is important, particularly at Christmas and during Holy Week.  If you have the desire to serve our OLP community in this very special way, please contact the Parish Office.  The first choir practice will begin on Wednesday,
September 5th, 2018 at 715 PM~9:00 PM
Please do not leave the Church before the Celebrant (priest). 
The Mass ends officially when the priest leaves the Church. 
Even then, it is usually advised you sit or kneel in silent prayer of thanksgiving or simply gaze at Jesus in the Tabernacle, 
smile at Him and just 
be joyful.   God Loves you!

Sunday, October 21, 2018, World Mission Sunday

On this World Mission Sunday, Pope Francis calls all of us-children of God-to be "voices of mission."  Today we "speak up" through our prayers and personal sacrifices for our brothers and sisters in the Missions - places like Uganda where people face food uncertainty and violence...in the Philippines where local clergy face martyrdom...
in Oceania where peoples' livelihoods are threatened by climate change...and in remote regions of Latin America where people are hearing the Gospel for the first time.
Raise your voice this World Mission Sunday by supporting the priests, religious Sisters and Brothers, and lay catechists who provide loving service to those most in need.  May your faith remain ever young when it is open to the mission that Christ entrusts to us.  Thank you!
