Welcome to OLA

Welcome! Selamat Datang! Bienvenido!

The priests of the Society of Mary (Marists) are happy to serve the OLA Community where all are welcome. I pray that your presence here will be long and happy. I also pray that your spiritual life will continue to grow as you come to know yourself in worship, education and service.

In my bulletin note this weekend I spoke of the MLK Holiday:

On Monday our nation celebrates the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Dr. King once spoke these words in a speech to Christian ministers, “On some positions, Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’ Expediency asks the  question, ‘Is it politic?’ And Vanity comes along and asks the question, ‘Is it popular?’ But Conscience asks the question ‘Is it right?’ And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must do it because Conscience tells him it is right.”

Those words continue to resonate today, in a world that is still plagued with many forms of injustice. We are called by our heavenly Father to bring about a world of justice, no matter the cost to us. In this new year I challenge you to go beyond the safe, the politic, and the popular to do what is right in your families, workplaces, and in society.

Yours in Jesus and Mary,

Reverend Jim Duffy, S.M.
