Below you can explore some of the wide variety of opportunites available at OLL to help you to enrich your faith and grow in your faith.


The formation of the Catholic from the time of birth through the end of life is an important aspect of one’s growth in faith and spirtuality.  At OLL we offer a variety of opportunities for Catholic formation including studies, activities, and preparation and formation classes and so much more! The options are broken into 3 “life stages”: Families and young Children (up to 5th Grade), Jr./Sr. High Students, and Adults. You can see the options in the different sections below.   



We are excited to invite families with children in any of our Faith Formation or Confirmation programs to participate in one of the teaching Masses being offered here at Our Lady of the Lake.  These four Masses will be offered on third Wednesdays over the next four months. Father will take us deeper into four different parts of the Mass beginning with Introductory Rites and the Trinity,  followed by Liturgy of the Word, Liturgy of the Eucharist, and Concluding Rites. Families will have a chance to learn and experience the Mass together. There will also be time for families to connect with other families after the Mass to discuss their experience.
