Dear Parish and School Families, We are aware that another fake email, claiming to be from Fr. Jerome, is currently in circulation. Unfortunately, such things are out of our control to stop or eliminate. Our priests will never send an email or text asking for money or gift cards. This is often done under the ruse of needing immediate help or assistance. It is also important that you look carefully at the senders email address if you receive an unusually or unexpected email from one of our priests; each will only use his established or official email addresses. Please never send any kind of financial information via email or text to someone claiming to be one of our priests.
Correction: there is no 11:30am Mass on Friday, Sept 23 since SMC will not be in session. This was printed incorrectly in our past Sunday's bulletin.
OLL/SMC is seeking donations of live and silent auction items for our Annual H.O.P.E. Auction this November. If you are interested in donation items, please contact the parish office at 620-231-2135.
