Student Council Food Drive for St. Vincent de Paul Exceeds Goal!

Our OLL Student Council set an ambitious schoolwide goal that our community would bring in 4,000 food items to support those in need through the St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank. Through the exceptional generosity of our school community, more than 5,000 items were brought in!

Thank you to all our students and families for your tremendous support during a time when hunger is impacting so many in our community. Also, we offer much appreciation for the members of our OLL St. Vincent de Paul Chapter who do so much for others, from assisting with food to helping with other life needs. Each person brings alive our OLL core values of gratitude and discipleship - thank you!

Thank You for a Record-Breaking OLL Fun Run!

This year, we far surpassed our goal and raised an astounding $60,650 for Our Lady of the Lake! Much appreciation for the Fun Run team who made it happen, our students and teachers for all the positive (and fun!) competition, and for the generosity of all our donors, from parents and grandparents to alumni and parishioners. Thank you! Funds from this year go toward our general operating budget, purchasing our family t-shirts for grades PK - 8, and enhancing our Music and Art programs so that we can continue advancing the OLL mission.
