Community Life Guilds

Is there a group you have always wanted to start at Our Lady of the Lake? Do you yearn for meaningful community? Is there an activity, devotion, or cause that you want to share with others? Now is your chance!

A “guild” is a group of people with similar interests. In the history of the Church, many guilds were like a cross between a prayer society, a support group, and a social club. At Our Lady of the Lake, we envision Community Life Guilds as social groups that draw parishioners and their guests together around faith, fellowship, and fun. There are already a number of groups like this at our parish, and we want to equip parishioners to start more!

Fill out this form or contact Cory Lakatos at clakatos@oll.org or 616-399-1062 ext. 110 with your ideas.


Community Life Events

There’s an opportunity to spend time with your fellow parishioners every month of the year. Take a look at the News & Announcements section on the home page for information on upcoming events.


The Rosary Guild

The Rosary Guild meets to pray the Rosary as a parish community at a variety of times. All are welcome to join in.

  • The last Sunday of the month at 10:15 a.m. (between the Masses)
  • More times coming soon!

The Holy Mother’s Beads

This guild makes beaded Rosaries for donation to a variety of causes within and outside the parish. They also pray and socialize together. The Holy Mother’s Beads meets at two different times:

  • Every Wednesday at 9:45 a.m. in Room AB
  • The first and third Monday of the month at 7:30 p.m. in Room C

That Man is You honestly addresses the pressures and temptations that men face in our modern culture, especially those relating to their roles as husbands and fathers. The program harmonizes current social and medical science with the teachings of the Church and the wisdom of the saints to develop the vision of man fully alive!

Begins September 14, 2018
Fridays, 5:45-7:30 a.m. (Breakfast Provided)
