Come After Me
As Lent comes near, the Church begins to pay attention to
the unbaptized and uninitiated who will seek to be brought
into full communion with the Church.
Our parish has been blessed with instructing various
groups of people as they prepare for the Sacraments.
Alongside the preparation for First Holy Communion for
children, we also have several youth stepping forward to
be Confirmed.
We also have nine adults to be baptized, ten adults who
will be Confirmed and receive Holy Eucharist for the first
time and 5 adult Catholics who will be Confirmed in May.
Pray that we may continue to be good examples to those
who want to live the Christian way of life.
Welcome to all our visitors and guests and we hope you enjoy your stay here in Oxford.
Newcomers to our parish please call the parish office at your earliest convenience to be registered.
Matrimony: Couples should call 6 months in advance for required preparation.
Baptism: Parents may call Fr. Joe for preparation.
Parents of all children enrolled in parish programs must be registered in the parish.
Bulletin submissions must be sent to the office by noon on Wednesday in writing via email or in person.
Current laws do not permit the Church to get information on hospitalized patients. If you know of someone in the
hospital or recovering at home, please let the Church know so we can schedule a visit.

Survey Says:
The Parish Council is assembling a survey that will be 
“live” online in February and also in hard-copy. The 
survey gives you, the parishioner, an opportunity to
rate the various programs and offices of the Parish. Fr.
Joe and the Council are also interested in the next
step we should take as a parish.
These are exciting times for Oxford and the OUL
community. It is wise to make decisions today that may
bring positive results in this promising future.
