There are many benefits to being involved in the programs at OLA. Primary among these is that children will witness an adult taking their faith seriously. That critical example is something we cannot provide. What we can provide is the training and support you need to assist us in teaching our faith to them. Please prayerfully consider how you might be involved and contact Marianne Giovingo to get started. Thank you and God Bless.
