We are so pleased to announce that we are putting into place a new system at Our Lady of the Mountains that will make scheduling of Liturgical Ministers much easier for everyone!
An email was sent on Wednesday, May 8th from Shawn. This email has your Username and Password.
Please take a moment and check it out.
Using this online system you'll be able to specify exactly what times do and do not work well for you to serve. Use the mobile app! You'll also be able to check your schedule from anywhere and easily find a substitute when you can't make one of your scheduled dates.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I was moved with great joy with the spirit
of generosity that exist in our parish as some of you stepped up right away this weekend to kick off our
$25,000 matching fund challenge.
As you know a generous donor has challenged us to match funds up to $25,000.00 toward our Capital Campaign before May 31st. Although that triggered nightmares concerning how we will meet this challenge by May 31st, but your unbelievable and immediate act of generosity has given me great hope!
Several people have donated to help me get some sleep and saved me from falling into insomnia; what a great sleep prescription(laugh). I am still hoping for more donations for us to meet this challenge by May 31st. Please consider making a gift now to double the impact and meet this challenge.
On your checks please designate in the memo: ‘Matching Challenge’.
THANK YOU for your support.
GRACE and GRUB
