Come join us on the 23rd of each month for Eucharistic Adoration. The Blessed Sacrament will be on exposition all day and evening beginning immediately after the 8:00 a.m. Mass and continuing until 9:00 p.m. Our monthly day of adoration provides everyone with an opportunity to spend some quiet personal time with our Lord in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. Jesus is truly, really and subtantially present in the Blessed Sacrament.

Lectors are needed. Have you ever thought about proclaiming the word of God? Consider joining OLMC’s lector ministry. It is a privilege to be able to proclaim the Word of God to the congregation.

The lector ministry is important. The Lord needs lectors to proclaim his words and message to his people. If you are interested, please join us any Saturday morning from 8:30 - 9:30 a.m.
