OLV PARISH COUNCIL is seeking members
for the Evangelization and Outreach Committee, as well as the
Family Life Committee. The Evangelization and Outreach
Committee seeks, through prayerful discernment, an
awareness of the spiritual needs of the parish. Its goal is to stir
up the flames of faith in all parishioners toward a personal
relationship with Jesus Christ. The committee also coordinates
outreach to the community. The Family Life Committee works
to strengthen the bonds within families and between
parishioners and the broader church community through
various social events. Anyone who may be interested in either
position, please see Fr. Jeff or any parish council member.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!

p.m. Mass on Saturday; ushers are needed at all Masses; Altar
Servers are also needed as we are down to only 3. We also
need a Eucharistic Minister to visit Andover Village Retirement

population in residence there If you feel you are being led to
any of these ministries, please call the office at 440-293-6218.
