Feast Day of Our Lady of Fatima
Friday, May 13th
Come honor the Blessed Mother by praying the Rosary and attending Mass at a Marian Shrine dedicated to her. We shall specifically offer the Rosary for peace in the world, and for obedience throughout the world to the message of Our Lady of Fatima. Also, make the resolution to keep the Five First Saturdays Communion of Reparations in the months to come, as she requested. In the end, as she promised, her Immaculate Heart will triumph.
33 DAYS TO MORNING GLORY CONSECRATION after 12:00 Noon Mass for those who have been preparing.

THE HOLY HOUR OF REPARATION will be prayed after the Consecration, offering to our Lord prayers of thanksgiving and reparation and entreating the intercession of the Blessed Mother and all the saints for unity in the Church, for sinners of all types, for a just and lasting peace in the world and more! Prayers of reparation are most needed for in light of the grievous sins which have been and are being perpetrated. Adoration continues in the chapel until evening Mass.

A huge Thank You to all who turned out for our annual OLC Spring Clean Up Day! The grounds were cleared of much debris, the grotto weeded and tidied, and the Chapel wood, brass and windows were polished to a lovely shine. We appreciate all the effort.
 
It was a Gorgeous Day for a May Crowning!
Fr. Gerard Lynch led the May procession, and recent First Communicant Anastasia Lee crowned the Blessed Virgin statue in our Grotto. Afterwards, everyone was invited in to celebrate with cake.

A Warm OLC Welcome for Author Kelly Guest
An enthusiastic group stayed after the May First Saturday Mass & Devotions to hear Kelly Guest speak on the subject of her new book, "Saintly Moms: Stories of Holiness from the Saints" as well as her own unique and journey from the convent to marriage and motherhood and ultimately, through God's grace, to sainthood. Afterwards, she signed books in the bookstore. It was a sell out. More books are ordered and are on the way. If you missed Kelly's talk, which listeners described as fascinating and delightful, we are planning on having her back again soon.

Father's Day is June 19th, and it is also the Feast of Corpus Christi, the Body of Christ. What a perfect time to let your spiritual father know how much you appreciate everything he does for you. Here are some ideas: have a Mass offered for him; purchase an image of the Sacred Heart for your home and ask him over to dinner to bless it; give him a Gift Certificate to OLC to use along with his regular priest discount of 20%; send a card with a spiritual bouquet blooming with Masses, rosaries and novenas; fill a gift basket with Cafe 4 Life Coffee, a mug and a CD or a good book.
