Father’s Day Remembrance. I will offer a special blessing at the end of Masses this weekend for all our Fathers. Please stand and bow your head for the blessing when asked to do so. The Anniversary of Marriage blessings will be celebrated next week.
As part of our Father's Day Celebrations we are pleased to have the St. Joseph Pilgrim Icon on display at all Masses this weekend. The Knights of Columbus (KofC) Pilgrim Icon Program encourages devotion to St. Joseph as a model for all Christian fathers. The program will be held on June 22, 2022 at 6:30pm in the church. A light reception in St. Andrew Hall will follow. Questions may be directed to Grand Knight, Tom Hrica, 803.603.7860, or email email@example.com. See the Flyer to read all about this special icon and program.
Please! The BirthRight Baby Bottles are due this weekend. Return the bottles to the bassinet in the Narthex with loose change, dollar bills or checks (Write checks to Our Lady of the Lake and Baby Bottle in the memo line) this Father's Day weekend!

The parish will be transitioning to FlockNote from Constant Contact in early July. FlockNote is similar to Constant Contact but is specifically CATHOLIC in its design. The diocese is paying for the parish to use FlockNote so this is a great savings to the parish. All registered parish households will receive an email notifying them that they have been subscribed to FlockNote. You will have more control over how you want to receive messages from the parish, by email or by text. You will also have the ability to register for multiple parish email lists of interest to you. FlockNote allows unlimited editors so every parish ministry and group can set up their own email/text list. We are excited about this coming change so look for it in the near future. As always, you can unsubscribe from this service as well but you will be missing out on all the NEWS from our parish!
Please continue to pray for peace between Russia and Ukraine, throughout Africa and the world. May all world leaders' hearts be converted to the Love of the Risen Christ!
Some brief, but important news and reminders:
We will have the 8:00AM Hospitality this Weekend!
There will be NO 10:30AM Hospitality Hour.
There will be a Patriotic Rosary after the 5:00PM Vigil Mass on 2 July. Please plan on joining us.
Please, if you see something in the church that needs to be fixed or repaired, report it to Donnie Jameson, our Facilities Manager, or to Fr. Dennis. Please do not try to fix or repair something on your own or without permission.
Given the threat to Catholic Churches in recent weeks and in recognition of our continued exposure to vandalism we have returned to our pre-covid policy of locking the main church except for scheduled Masses and events. The Adoration Chapel will remain available for prayer with an entry code. The entry code is available at the parish office.
Parish Neighbors, our newest parish ministry, is off to a great start. We now have 29 Neighborhood Contacts. If you would like to be a Neighborhood Contact please see the flyer HERE and sign-up to be a part of this ministry.
Peace and all good,
