OLW NEARLY PACKED FOR PALM SUNDAY MASSES

Our Lady of the Wayside faithful filled the church almost to capacity for each Mass on the weekend of April 8-9 - Palm Sunday.

For the first time in several years, there were six Palm Sunday Masses as OLW has added a 6:00 p.m. Sunday Mass within the past two months. While the new Mass is aimed primarily at teenagers, with teens serving many of the laymen's functions, the 6:00 p.m. Mass draws a substantial number of adults as well.

OLW will be changing it's Mass schedule again in January 2018, as at least one Mass is eliminated, in part the result of a reduced number of priests in the area.

In addition to Christmas and Easter, Palm Sunday is one of the high attendance Masses and this year was no different.
