Our Lady of the Lake
Since that first Mass in 1929 when 128 people gathered in Mr. Thorpe's cabin, and where Henry Boudreau arrived faithfully each Sunday to split wood and build a fire in the pot-bellied stove, God has "fanned into flame" an ardent community of faith over these many years here and in this parish known as Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church.
This parish, multi-generational and generous, has been and continues to be, a visible presence in the Wedgwood area not merely by its bell tower and imposing church of brick and mortar, but through her parishioners who try to incarnate the face of Christ and the mystery of God's mercy.
We comprise a parish of over 800 families who discover in this place the "hidden ground of love", inspiring us to live in this love through its sacramental life, its liturgy and its prayer as well as through the committees, organizations and activities offered here. We are blest to have a parish school which strives to educate our children in values and principles shaped by the Gospel. It is a parish school committed to the tradition of awakening in young people a sense of God in the ordinary and everyday, as well as teaching them to believe that God is glimpsed in the human face.
I invite you to participate in the spiritual life of this parish, to immerse yourself in the Catholic tradition which is "ever ancient, ever new", to find yourself at home within a community that has tried for over seventy-five years to remain faithful to the way of the Gospel which is Christ, "yesterday, today and forever."
Father Timothy J. Clark
