What is the OLV Family Ministry?
“As the family goes, so goes the nation, and so goes the whole world in which we live.” Pope St. John Paul II
The OLV FM's mission is to create opportunities for families to come together and dive deeper into their faith. We understand that faith begins in the home, so it's aimed to solidify the Catholic identity of the family and build a firm foundation for our little domestic churches.
What are some OLV FM events?
OLV FM events include Family Masses (students and families take on an extra role in our Mass – greeting, reading, singing, and eating...after Mass of course), Sports Masses (we dedicate a Mass each season for the blessing of our players and coaches), Family Movie Nights (family-friendly movies that bring people together for entertainment, community and FUN, sometimes including yummy pizza), and other occasional events like pet blessings, family holy hours, service opportunities and more!
