    The OLM Do It For Jesus Program Re-Commitment Weekend was the weekend of March 10-11. We encourage all parishioners to complete and turn in your Commitment Cards to the Church. The Commitment Card contains information on how to plan your increased offertory gift to the church, and asks for your commitment over the next year. If you have any questions regarding this program, or how to give electronically, please contact the parish office.

    Please visit the Do It for Jesus webpage here to learn more about electronic giving options.
