We also offer quarterly night meetings for mothers who work outside the home as well as “Moms Night Out” social meetings throughout the year.

Surviving Divorce

Surviving Divorce is an exciting new ministry that will bring hope and healing to those who have experienced the pain and loneliness of a broken marriage. This program is for the newly separated and divorced and those still struggling with issues many years later. It will help them find answers to their questions, restore their hope, and begin authentic healing.

Surviving Divorce features twelve video presentations that cover topics such as shock and grief, anger and forgiveness, money issues, dealing with children and a former spouse, and annulment and remarriage.

The twelve-week Surviving Divorce program meets on Thursday evening at OLOL. The cost of the program for participants is $22 which includes the Surviving Divorce Personal Guide and all program materials.

Please join us as we find comfort and counsel consistent with Catholic Church teachings.

At the present time, we do not have a new start date. Watch the bulletin, parish app or website for more information:

Bereavement (Hospitality) Committee

Rita Shade (rshade63@gmail.com)
This group provides a meal for the families of our dearly beloved deceased after the funeral as a service to fellow parishioners in their time of grief. Members use Sign Up Genius to sign up to prepare food, help set-up, or serve.

Bereavement (Support) Committee

Lynn Herman (615) 824-0988
We invite you to attend several “A Patchwork of Grief” Support Group sessions to allow you to tell your story and really be “listened to.” Just as in a patchwork quilt, we each have had a different experience with death and we deal with our grief in our own way. This group is just one way offered to you for education about the grieving process and support from parishioners who have been trained to assist in the grieving process. The sessions are held in the library of the OLOL center in the Fall on 8 consecutive Tuesday nights at 7:00 PM. The dates are in the bulletin.
