Who are OLOL’s Youth Disciples? 

What can Middle School disciples do?

The Pier is a band of 6-8th grade disciples who come together as a community to know their Father in Heaven by following Christ’s call to live their Catholic faith, here and now.

The Pier meets on Sunday morning from 9:45 AM – 10:45 AM to come to know Christ through studying the Scriptures and to share their faith with one another and the wider community.

What can High School disciples do? 

Lakehouse is a community of high school disciples who seek to live their Catholic faith authentically by following the Lord through prayer and friendship.

Lakehouse meets together each Wednesday from 6 – 8:30 PM to joyfully seek God in prayer and fellowship with the Youth Minister, each other, and adult disciples. Evenings feature exciting, large-scale games, intimate encounters of prayer, and Mass. Dinner is included in the evening. 

Lakehouse also meets each Sunday from 4 – 5:30 PM to enjoy fellowship and break open the Scriptures together. Additionally, 11-12th grade disciples meet twice a month off-campus after the 11:00 Sunday Mass to discuss their journey in faith in conversation with the Youth Minister and adult mentors.



Please email Jordan Smith at jordans@ololcc.org or 615-338-3903 with any questions.


Our Lady of the Lake Chapter

Fraternus is a virtue-based mentoring program with the goal of mentoring young Catholic boys into virtuous Catholic men – men of chastity, integrity, and discipleship. Seeking to renew the masculine heart through authentically Catholic formation in virtue, this brotherhood of disciples is open to all young men in grades 6 through 12. The group meets every Monday Night at OLOL from 6:30-8:30, and we are always looking for more men to step up as mentors. Contact Tom Wynne at 615-944-5825.

Fidelis is the sister ministry to Fraternus. Like Fraternus, it is a virtue-based program. This program is designed for young women in grades 6 through 12. We meet weekly for friendship, fun, and formation in the three theological virtues of faith, hope, and love along with the four cardinal virtues of prudence, temperance, fortitude, and justice. By accepting weekly invitations, which coordinate our virtue study with Sunday’s gospel, women and girls seek to support each other in walking this path to joy in Christ. We are a sisterhood that enjoys sharing our faith while working together to develop and understand true femininity according to God’s will. All girls ages 11 through 18 are invited to join! We are in need of more women to mentor. If interested, please contact Patti Deffendall at 615-944-8986. Fidelis meets Monday nights during the school year at OLOL from 6:30 P.M. to 8:25 P.M. in the teen room downstairs by St. Joseph’s hall.
