Pierogies Are Back for Lent! - We need volunteers to help with packaging and selling pierogis on Fridays during Lent (except Good Friday). This is a great way to earn community service hours. Volunteers of all ages are needed. If you can help, please meet Deacon Dave at the school gym at 3:00pm on Fridays during Lent. If you have any questions, please email Deacon Dave at  [email protected] 

During the Fridays of Lent (except Good Friday), OLV will be selling Rosie's Pierogies. Cost is $8.00 a dozen. The options available will be: freshly made with butter and onion and bagged freshly made plain. The frozen options will be frozen plain, jalapeno flavored and bacon flavored.  They will be sold from the front of the school auditorium from 3:30 to 5:30pm, or until we run out.  All proceeds will go to the OLV School Capital Improvements Campaign.


School Improvements Project Information:  Information about planned renovations to the 

gym and school cafeteria,  and ongoing safety issues can be found by clicking on the link

Medically-Trained Parishioners:  Any medically trained personnel (doctors, nurses, EMTs) willing to make themselves known at Mass, please contact the head usher before the start of Mass. As time goes on, and the names and faces are more familiar, this action will become either unnecessary or more routinely accomplished.  You have the thanks of all those attending Mass for both your presence and potential assistance, and the improved safety environment within our church.
