Serve in Christ

"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms." 1 Peter 4:10

Service Projects

Teaching the Fundamentals of Caring

Due to the Pandemic there have been some necessary changes to community involvement for our students.  Many events have been cancelled that our students would normally volunteer  to help at.  Our students and staff have been creative in finding ways to serve the School, Church and community at large.  When the Pandemic’s restrictions are lifted and it is safe for our community to hold larger events our students and staff will resume volunteering for those events scheduled by the School and Church.

OLL believes that one of the best ways to serve Christ, is through service to others. As a catholic community, we work with many organizations to give back.

There have been some necessary changes to community involvement for our students during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many events have been cancelled, and plan to resume when it is safe to do so.

We have continued to find ways to give! So far, in the 2020-21 academic year, we have helped these wonderful organizations:

  • The BRICK Ministries, Inc., by collecting donations during our Baby Jesus Birthday Party.
  • Ashland Aging Unit, by decorating food bags that were used in their meal delivery program.
  • Students decorated Christmas cards for residents of Ashland Health Services. 
  • Gifts were collected and cards were made  for the residents at Northern Lights Services, in Washburn, WI.
  • Middle School students participated in the VFW's Patriot Pen Essay contest.
  • We joined the Our Lady of the Lake Religious Formation for the Star of Hope Campaign. This campaign was shared throughout the diocese, and urged people to share stars in their windows during the Christmas season.

WHY DO WE CHOOSE OLL?

FAMILIES SHARE THEIR THOUGHTS

"My child is excited to go to school everyday which shows she enjoys it. You are creating a fun and enjoyable learning environment for the kids. They are learning a lot despite all the challenges of this year."

"I think academics are important of course, but I really like the religious/community service aspect."

"We are not Catholic, but do believe in Christ. We don't attend any church services. But I have been so thankful that {my son} has been able to learn about Christ and faith. It's so beautiful to hear him pray and give thanks to God and talk about Jesus and Mary and all of God's creatures. Thank you all so much!"
