Serve in Our World
At Our Lady of The Lake, we take seriously the Gospel call to build the Kingdom of God. We do this through our outreach efforts, both locally and globally as part of the universal Church.
Globally, we are developing relationships with several countries throughout the globe. Our Lady of the Lake parishioners have participated in mission trips to the Dominican Republic, Tanzania, El Salvador and Ethiopia .... and, in turn, we have been enriched by visits from them.
Important as our charitable outreach is, Catholic Social Teaching reminds us that we must work to change the systems that work to perpetuate poverty and oppression and so we participate in programs that encourage education, that strengthen families, and that honor the value of each human life as having been made in the image and likeness of God.
While there are many international outreach activities to choose from, you may feel drawn to a global ministry that Our Lady of the Lake does not currently participates in. Let us know and we’ll see how we can work with you to bring the Kingdom of God closer.
