As we transition into our own place of worship, may we remain worthy stewards and willing instruments of your mercy, healing and peace to the world around us. May visitors, pilgrims and friends feel the welcome and warmth of a growing faith community here at Lake County.

May our parishioners, benefactors and associates be blest with generous and loving hearts to collaborate and work together in harmony for the growth and increase of this faith community.

THE SIGN OF THE CROSS is who we are as followers of Christ.  Sometimes when something is repeated over and over and over again, it loses its meaning.  Such could be the case with the Sign of the Cross. For us as Catholic Christians, it should be a reverent prayer, one to be reflected upon as we make the sign and say the most holy words: “In the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen”… (which means, “I Believe.”)
