Samaritans’ Gifts for Kids Program

Sunday, December 24th, 2017


A huge thank you to all of you who sponsored a Samaritan Gifts for Kids angel. There were a total of 331 children in 148 families throughout the Conneaut School District (ages 13 and under) who benefited from this program. OLQA donated gifts or money for 115 of these children and provided many of the over 50 volunteers who helped with this year. Many families expressed their thanks for having such a program. Here is just one example: “Thank you for your help with Christmas. My kids will truly have the best Christmas ever. And thanks for having all the wonderful helping people at pick up. There were all really nice and helpful.”

Archbishop Chaput’s column on the recent Anti-Catholic emails lets us know what we’re up against.


St. Teresa of Calcutta

Monday, September 5th, 2016

After a fast-track process Mother Teresa has been declared a saint.  The church throughout the world rejoices.

Her feast day is September 5, the date of her death in 1997.  She was 87 years old.

Yet despite widespread affection and admiration for her in the secular world, there is also a vocal current of opposition and animus in the international left.  An interesting editorial analyzes the causes of this disdain.  It is well worth reading.
