Mother’s Day/Senior Day: Next weekend, May 11-12, we will give the traditional blessing to all mothers at all Masses. In addition at the 9:30am we will also recognize OLV’s high school seniors with a special blessing. Following the Mass we will invite the seniors and parents to come to the Youth Room on the lower level of the Activities Center for a light reception and a small gift for the seniors and their moms. If you plan to come, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. I hope to see you there.
Mother’s Day Mass Cards are available in the Gathering Space and by the steps. The offerings we receive go to the Gabriel Project to help them minister to expecting mothers in difficult circumstances.
