Welcome to the web page for Our Lady of the Mountains Parish. I hope that this site will be useful to all who visit it.
Ministry Sign Up
This weekend we will be collecting our ministry forms. The vitality of our parish is so much dependent on our willingness to minister to one another, to the Church and to visitors. Please take time to volunteer for one or more ministries in the parish. If you need a booklet or form, there are some in the church as well as in the parish office.
Annual Catholic Appeal
It’s never too late to make your pledge to the Annual Catholic Appeal. Remember that your donation goes toward the education of seminarians such as Father Tom Quirk and Deacon Peter Pedrasa, Richard Rivera and Joe Schaaf. The ACA also helps with the training of permanent Deacons and Lay Ministers, support for Catholic Schools and Catholic Social Services. You can make your pledge by clicking on the link on the left side of this page.
Don’t forget to make your donation to CTSO so that you can receive the state tax credit. I made mine to the maximum amount I can give. This is a win-win situations as we get our money back as state tax credits and the students get scholarships. Please remember to check the box for All Saints Catholic School. See the link on the side of the page to make your donation.
We began our new school year on August 1. The teachers and students have returned for the new school year. Please be careful driving near the school. Also, you might notice all the fixed plaster and new paint around the school. Our school really looks wonderful and welcoming for the new students.
ASCS continues to look for new students from pre-school through grade 8. If you have not yet registered your child, give the school office a call at 378-7012 or stop by during school hours.
Visitors are always welcome to our parish, so if you are traveling through the area, we hope to see you soon in person.
We have been updating our parish Facebook page frequently. You can take a look by clicking on the link on the left side of the page.
Holy Land Pilgrimage
The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem is a Catholic order that works for good of the Christian Community in the Holy Land by prayer, pilgrimage and financial support. One of the ancient missions of the Order is to support pilgrimages to the Holy Land. As a member of the Order, I am privileged to be able to lead a pilgrimage from October 8 through 19 of this year. The registration is now closed, but please keep us in prayer. If you would like to see the itinerary, you can look at the Pilgrimage Brochure.
God’s blessings to all,
Fr. Mike Bucciarelli
