Stewardship of Treasure Begins November 1st

Every fall parishioners are asked to prayerfully consider their stewardship in support of the many ministries and programs here at Our Lady of Guadalupe through their time, talent and treasure. In the next few days you will receive your stewardship of treasure renewal letter from Fr. Kevin. 2020 has been a most difficult and challenging year for our parishioners, our parish, and our community. Given this, as well as the recent completion of the Annual Catholic Appeal, and Called to Serve as Christ campaign, we are asking your permission to rollover your parish financial support pledge from last year to 2021. If you consent to renew your 2020 pledge for 2021 – you do not need to do anything. If you would like to make changes to your pledge (or you did not make a pledge last year), simply fill out the enclosed pledge card you will receive and mail it to the parish. You can also make your pledge online. We ask that you respond by the end of November as we will begin the rollover process the first of December.   
2019-2020 Annual Report Now Available
Last week a copy of the parish annual report was emailed or mailed to registered parishioners. We are pleased to present our Annual Report to the parish for the fiscal and pastoral year starting July 1, 2019 and ending June 30, 2020. We take seriously our responsibility to be good stewards of your time, talent and treasure. We thank you for your ongoing support and participation, for without you there would be no report to give. 
OLG Election Day Vigil

Let’s join together on Election Day, Nov. 3, in prayer and solidarity.
From 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., we will stand vigil (socially distanced, with masks) on 35th Avenue outside the church, to offer prayers for our nation and to encourage our neighbors driving by.

We invite you to bring your own candle if you'd like. Also, remember this is a non-partisan vigil so leave your campaign gear at home.
Gather friends and sign up for a half-hour vigil time slot:
