Mercy Care Back to School Supplies Needed

OLA's Mercy Care Ministry is grateful for the incredible support that OLA has provided to Mercy Care over the past twelve months through meal kit builds and the annual Christmas Adoptions. Thank you!


The ministry asks for your continued support by donating supplies to their annual School Supplies Drive. Last year - with your help - Mercy Care was able to give away over 700 backpacks filled with school supplies. The annual back-to-school event is also a chance for Mercy Care staff to sit down with families, schedule physicals, or help fill out paperwork.

Archdiocesan Choir concert at the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception 

The Archdiocesan Choir is hosting a concert of sacred music on Sunday, June 11, at the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception at 7 p.m. called “Songs of Our Faith”.

This concert is a celebration of the sacred music, alive in our Catholic faith, that has helped the people of God pray in community down through the generations and the music the walks with the faithful to the altar of the Lord.

The concert will feature music from multiple genres from Chant to Gospel and Hymnody to Haugen. Admission is free but a love offering will be taken to help offset the costs of the event. The concert is taking place as part of the 175th Anniversary Celebration of the Catholic Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the first Catholic church in Atlanta.
