Saturday Vigil - 4:30pm
Dear Friends in Christ,
Welcome to the website of Our Lady of Consolation Church! We are happy that you have taken the time to visit this page. As pastor, I hope that you will find it helpful and informative.
OLC is an ethnically diverse community of faith drawing members from Merrillville, Crown Point, Schererville, and beyond. The center of parish life is our worship of God in the celebration of the Holy Mass. From our weekly gathering for the Eucharist flow our ministry within our parish as well as beyond our doors: our Faith Formation Program, Friends in Christ (formerly known as St. Vincent de Paul), the Women’s Guild and Holy Name Society, our Youth Ministry, the Good Shepherd Council of the Knights of Columbus, as well as the St. Gianna Molla Respect Life ministry.
Here at Our Lady of Consolation Parish we are blessed with many members who have answered God's call to service. Jesus invites every parishioner, every Catholic, every Christian to join the "orchestra" that is the Body of Christ. In order for the great symphony of God's plan to achieve the fullness of its beauty, we need every "instrument" to be filled with the music of the Holy Spirit. Just as a symphony brings out the rich diversity of harmonies intended by the composer, so too the diversity of our individual gifts have been entrusted to us to find voice in the Church. We invite you to join us in the beautiful hymn that is the Church.
If you have any questions, or if there is anything I can do to help you on your spiritual journey, feel free to contact me. And please consider visiting us at our beautiful church and parish campus.
God bless you!
