Fr. Louis Golamari presenting a Lenten Men's Talk

In 2018, our Associate Pastor Louis Golamari, along with Deacons Grossnickle and Madison, begin the 8th year of the OLW Lenten talks for men. All men are once again invited to attend a Lenten Series of Reflection, Prayer and Challenge every Saturday morning during the Lenten Season.

The 40 Days of Lent provide Men of Faith an excellent opportunity to Walk with Christ, Learn from Christ and Pray with Christ. Join Fr. Louis Golamari in the Gathering Place for one hour every Saturday during Lent (February 17 through March 24, 2018). Reflect, refuel, and reinforce your Christian life!

Attendees gathered for the talk and sharing


Some of the OLW Lenten talks for men may be recorded (and edited) so you can listen to them streamed here on the web, or download them to your computer and then copy them to your MP3 players to listen to them as you are on the go! It may take up to 30 seconds before the podcast starts to play after you click play, depending on your computer, as the streaming begins.

NOTE: You can skip ahead by dragging the progress bar. Also, if the player is blank, or 00:00 shows up in the right corner of the player after you press play, use the arrows on the right side of the player to scroll down to view a status message.

NOTE: Recordings of prior year talks from 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2016 (did not record 2015 or 2017) are available on the Archive Page.
