Our Catholic Appeal:   Blessed are they who follow the law of the Lord! 
We are called to follow God’s Word. The law of the land. We strive to do just that through our ministries, but we are only the starting point. Being Catholic means being part of a community which flourishes God’s commandments within our neighborhoods. The ministries supported by Our Catholic Appeal extend our work beyond our parish boundaries so that we might prosper God’s law throughout Central Florida and beyond. 
You can visit www.cfocf.or/oca to learn more about the life changing impact of your gifts. 
If you have already received a pledge form in the mail, please complete it and mail it back or bring it to Mass with you next weekend. 
Our parish goal is $121,656. Once we achieve this goal, the majority of the additional funds will be returned to our parish to support our own special needs. 
Thank you for your generosity!

Faith Formation:   First Communion will be during all weekend Masses on May 6th and 7th. Please pray for our First Communion children. May they wait with joyful hope for their “first kiss of Jesus” and like St. Therese of Lisieux know in their hearts it is “truly a kiss of love”. (The Story of a Soul).  Confirmation on May 12th at 7pm.

RCIA: The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a journey to God and what He intends for us.  RCIA is the process by which persons who were never baptized, or were baptized in another Christian tradition, become members of the Church, a people on pilgrimage to our Heavenly Father. This is also for Catholics who never received their First Communion. We meet on Sundays at 1:30 in the church office. For more information please contact Dolly at the office or by email:  ollfaithform@ourladyofthelakes.org.  

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION:   Listen to what the Pope John Paul II said: "The Church and the world have a great need of Eucharistic worship”. Jesus waits for us in this sacrament of love. Let us be generous with our time in going to meet Him in adoration. Notice how the Holy Father is asking you to be generous with your time. He is not asking for your money but something much more precious – your time. We invite you to come spend time with Jesus. Adorers are Needed. Please contact Stasia for scheduling 386-574-2131.

A Note from the Music Director
Great news everyone!  Choir rehearsals will be Tuesday evenings at 6:30 PM, in the church, beginning Tuesday, May 9th.  Rehearsals are open to everyone age 18 and up. (Under 18 with parent’s permission and reliable transportation).  Please come and join us as we lift our voices to the Lord in praise and thanksgiving.  There is room for everyone in the choir, from those with great natural talent and voice training, to those who simply love to sing in church and are willing to work and dedicate themselves to improving under the guidance of the music director, to glorify the Lord in song. 
 
For those who would be more comfortable singing alone with the music director, Jeff, to have their voice placed (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, Bass), or simply to learn what they could improve on, in order to be more confident and comfortable to join the choir, please contact Jeff at the office or directly at (989)-351-9648. 
 

We are forming a praise band to incorporate new, contemporary songs into our parish culture.  This ministry is targeted toward engaging the youth and young adults, but is open and welcoming to everyone.  We are currently seeking volunteers who have a basic proficiency in electric bass, electric guitar (melodic playing), and singers.  We would like to instate this ministry as soon as possible, so if you are interested, please contact Jeff immediately to learn more. 
 
Finally, we are seeking additional candidates for cantors at the Weekend Masses, as well as audio technicians to help manage the live sound during mass.  Both of these positions would require special and individual training with Jeff.  Please contact Jeff if you are interested in taking on one of these unique roles. 
 
Thank you and may God bless you all, 
Jeffry A Kuznicki Jr, Music Director
