July is dedicated to the Most Precious Blood of Jesus. More about this devotion here and here
“Eternal Father, I offer Thee the most precious blood of Thy Divine Son, Jesus, in union with the Masses said throughout the world today, for all the Holy Souls in Purgatory, for sinners everywhere, for sinners in the universal Church, those in my own home and within my family.” - St. Gertrude.

Children's Story Time and Coffee Hour

The "lazy" days of summer are upon us. Encourage your children to put away the electronics and develop a lifelong love of reading awesome books. Join us on July 17 at 10:30 am in the conference room for a storybook reading and a fun craft. We will be providing a snack and juice for the kids and fresh-brewed Mystic Monk coffee for the accompanying adults. And, since you'll be here anyway, why not stay for Mass?
RSVP to email@ourladyscenter.net so we have an idea of how many snacks to have!

Come Experience the Beauty of the Latin Mass!

Once a month, Our Lady's Center hosts a  Traditional Latin Mass. Once again, this month's Mass will be offered by Fr. Canisius Tah from the Church of the Resurrection in Ellicott City. Please join us for a meditative low Mass at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, July 28th. Missals are provided with Latin on one side and English on the other, so it is not difficult to follow along. Following Mass, we will enjoy another fun potluck in the conference room. Please bring something to share if you can and take advantage of a great chance to ask Father questions and to make some new friends. We are looking forward to seeing you there.

A Celebration of Dedication and Service
Our Lady's Center hosted a fun celebration last month in honor of Jack Kissane's 25 years of service on the Board of Directors. During the last four years as the President, Jack has enlisted on the Board, a diverse group of leaders who look after the many needs we face each day. For his service and dedication, Jack was presented with an engraved plaque with a heartfelt message. Friends, well-wishers, and OLC staff had a wonderful time together sharing stories and enjoying a veritable feast of delectable goodies (thank you, Carolyn!) Jack expressed his sincere gratitude to all who were present for making the event so memorable.

Meet Our New Manager

Please stop by and say hello to our new manager, Christine George Cunningham. Christine is an attentive, energetic, and knowledgeable leader who brings wonderful skills and commitment to the position. She earned a degree in Communications from McDaniel and has worked in advertising as a graphic artist, art director, and supervisor. She and Shawn, her husband of 23 years, are lifelong Catholics, active in St. Louis parish in Clarksville, and have homeschooled their four children. We look forward to the new era of guidance and enrichment that Christine will bring to the heart of Our Lady’s Center. She will certainly appreciate your prayers too.

Jack Kissane, President
Our Lady's Center Board of Directors

Who's on Board:
Msgr. Joseph Lizor

Our Lady's Center is blessed to have Msgr. Joseph Lizor on our Board of Directors. Msgr. Lizor recently celebrated his 57th year in the priesthood, having served as chaplain in the U.S. Army for 22 years, rising to the rank of Lt. Colonel, and as pastor of St. Luke's parish in Edgemere for 15 years. He used to fly as a private pilot as well. Although formally retired, Msgr. Lizor helps numerous organizations with daily or weekend services and is a counsel on diocesan and other Church related matters. We are so thankful to have him with us as our spiritual director as well as the regular celebrant of Monday Noon Mass. May the Lord continue to bless OLC for many years to come with Msgr. Lizor's sage counsel and delightful wit!

Look for the rest of our board members to be featured in the coming months.
