Is there a Group You Have Always Wanted to start at Our Lady of the Lake?

Do you yearn for meaningful friendships and 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!
