Dear Missionary Disciples,

There are currently a lot of exciting things beginning and occurring at Our Lady Catholic Church.

There will be a meeting for all Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers at 9:30 a.m. and all Lectors at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday January 27, 2018 in the church.  If you are interested in serving our Lord and the parish, this meeting is for you.

We are forming a team of Parish Missionary Disciples to begin meeting in March at the Cardinal Rigali Center.  This team will help our parish reawaken its mission to transform Catholic believers into missionary disciples, and help us to meaningfully, joyfully and respectfully give witness to how Jesus Christ lives in our hearts, influences our lives and calls us to wholeness and holiness.  Please contact Fr. Maassen if you are interested in this exciting opportunity

Men’s ACTS Retreat is coming up on February 8-11, 2018 at  Kings House in Belleville, IL .   This
Retreat has helped many men regain a much more fulfilling life, for some putting them back on the road to salvation, giving them a renewed excitement and energy as they live their Catholic faith.  The parish will sponsor all men who wish to be a retreatant.  For more information please call Bob Hoog at 636-262-5789, Dave Smock at 314-650- 6503, Matt Surdyke at 314-401- 0687 or Andrew Andrescavage at 314-239-9906.

All registered households will be sent a survey on the church remodel project.  In addition we will have two meetings where you may give your input on the specific issue of what you would like to see happen in the church basement and any remodeling. The meetings will be held in the church basement on Saturday, January 27 at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday, February 4 at 12:00 noon.
