Catholic Communities of the Ashland Cluster
We are passionate about children and families here at Our Lady of the Lake! We do not consider our youth to be merely "the future of the church", but the current church, alive and active! When it comes to Religious Formation, we get our mission straight from Jesus Christ. . .
"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations!" (Matthew 28:19) Our number one goal is to form authentic relationships with, not only the youth, but their parents as well, in order to walk with them on their journey and lead them deeper into relationship with Jesus Christ. Our focus is not so much as "teachers" but as witnesses!" We empower youth and adults to use the gifts and talents that God has entrusted them with, and always strive to increase their involvement and presence in every aspect of parish life.
In the words of Saint John Paul II, "It is Jesus that you seek when you dream of happiness. He is waiting for you when nothing else you find satifies you." It is our joy and mission to inspire the young church in a radical way. . . .by bringing them closer to Jesus and forming disciples.
