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.
The Church gives us this beautiful time of Advent to reflect even in the midst of the harried season of Christmas shopping. I ask you to reflect on why you are decorating your house, baking cookies, cooking big meals, and shopping for presents. I ask you to reflect on our salvation, the Word made flesh.
Yours in Jesus and Mary,
Reverend Jim Duffy, S.M.
