|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 Parish Center for one hour every Saturday during Lent (February 17 through March 24, 2018). Reflect, refuel, and reinforce your Christian life!
