Good morning OLA! Today is Thursday, April 30, 2020! Please stand for our morning prayer as we remember we are in the presence of God. In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. Lord our God, we look to you in our many needs, in the distress of our hearts, in the anguish of the whole world. We beseech you, let light come to your people everywhere on earth to bring them your help and your victory. Remember the wretched, the sick, the poor. Let your living strength come to them so that they can bear their sufferings and hold out joyfully to the end. Remember us all, O Lord our God, for we all need you. We are weak and poor and cannot go forward alone. Your Spirit must help us. May the Savior come to us, and may his grace and his power be born in our hearts. Amen.

Get Outside! We know you need to stay home right now, but be sure to get outside! A little sunshine and exercise does everyone good! Go for a walk, ride a bike, work in the yard. Be active! Just stay away from everyone else while doing these activities. Crescent Questions and Fun Facts: A parent asked: Where was OLA’s first location and has it moved at all? The first location of OLA was in the old gym and classroom building of St. Joseph Academy. This was in the area of the Crab Fest grounds and Pavilion. We do not know for sure why that location was chosen, but we can guess it was chosen because it was close to the church and elementary school. A parent asked: What was damaged during Hurricane Katrina and was all the same rebuilt? There was a lot of damage from Hurricane Katrina. Johnson Hall is very different with a new door location and changes to the interior walls. St. Joseph was a very old but cool wooden building with fantastic windows and large classrooms. It was replaced by the present St. Joseph Hall. Mercy and McCauley Halls are pretty much the same. That’s all from WOLA. Have a great day!
