The staff, Pastoral Council and parishioners of Our Lady of Angels would like to thank Dr. Susan K. Parker for her years of dedication and service to all of us at OLA. She has lovingly served our parish in many roles. Guided by the Holy Spirit, Sue has touched so many individuals and families bring compassion, care, and empathy to many during times of pain and joy. If you would like to send Sue a personal note, please send it care of OLA. We wish Sue well on the next journey of her life.
OLA wants to thank Rick Vera, members of the OLA Finance Council and Boy Scouts from Troop 1914 for their help with the St. Vincent de Paul Thrift Store Truck on Saturday, April 10. OLA sponsors the SVDP Truck every other month on our parking lot. The volunteers help unload your car of the donations of items you give, load them in the truck and give out receipts for your donations. We are always looking for volunteers to help with our Bundle Saturdays. If you would like more information about helping or when the next truck is scheduled, please contact Rosemary Crocker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please welcome Heidi Simpson, Kathryn Dugan, Yvonne Bailes, Jennifer Evans, and Jamie Dugan as our new Stephen Ministers. These new ministers were commissioned on March 21. Their training has provided them with the knowledge and skills to offer quality, distinctively Christian, one-to-one care to people suffering from many kinds of life difficulties. We ask God's blessing on these Stephen Ministers and all our Stephen Ministers, and on their ministry in the weeks, months, and years ahead. We thank God for their gifts, and we ask God to work through them to bring help, hope, and healing to those in need. If you or someone you know would like more information about speaking with a Stephen Minister, please call our confidential hotline at (469) 467-9669 ext. 150, or see the Stephen Ministry page on this website.
