Being involved in your Parish Community (see our many involvement opportunities on the side of this page) can make such a positive impact on your faith and your sense of belonging. It is a wonderful and comfortable feeling when you know the faces around you, really know them and have things you can share with them and conversely can learn about in their lives. It adds to "feeling at home" and that is what Jesus wants of his people and of his church!
How good and pleasant it is
when God’s people live together in unity!
Being involved will not only strengthen your spirituality but will also make the faces surrounding you each Sunday more familiar. How wonderful that when you go to Mass you will feel a sense of community, a sense of belonging, a sense of a common bond in Christ!
For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
There are many opportunities to become involved here at OLL (see the many opportunities in the side margin) and in doing so, you will honor God's word to come together as a community through a wide variety of both big and small events hosted by our Church and our School. You also honor God's word to share our God-given gifts to serve others and to build up and serve his church through volunteering your time and talents.
not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
Practice hospitality ungrudgingly to one another. As each has received a gift, employ it for one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.
1 Peter 4:9-10
