World Day Against Trafficking of Persons

World Day against Trafficking of Persons

July 30, 2020

 

The world Day against Trafficking of Persons, proclaimed in 2013 by the UN General Assembly to be observed on July 30th each year, has as its purpose to raise awareness about human trafficking the plight of its victims, and the protection of their rights. “Trafficking in persons is a vile crime that feeds on inequalities, instability, and conflict. Human traffickers profit from people’s hopes and despair. They prey on the vulnerable and rob them of their fundamental rights.” (UN General Secretary Antonio Guteres.) It is a crime that exploits women, children and men for numerous purposes. Including forced labor and sex, which occurs across the globe and in our own communities.

 

Please join the Archdiocesan Office for Catholic Social Justice Ministry on July 30 at 12 Noon to pause and pray for an end to human trafficking. Then look for the release of their awareness presentation on their website http://www.catholicsocialjustice.org/human-trafficking.html

Email Request

May 4, 2020 - Keeping in Touch with Our Parishioners

The global coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the requirement for people to keep in touch electronically. Although Our Lady of the Lakes provides up-to-date information on this website and their OLOL Facebook page, we are not yet able to "push" information to our parishioners. We will need to provide important, timely information to our members about the re-opening of our Church and the social distancing process, new or changed Mass times, communications from our Pastor, event schedules and other news.

To make this happen, we are planning an email campaign to send a monthly or bi-monthly newsletter to our parishioners. Of course, this will require us to collect all of their email addresses. Obviously, we can't just make an announcement from the altar or put a notice in the bulletin.

We are asking that you send your name and email address to Henry Beary, the Parish Council Chairman, who will maintain an email database. We are also asking that you use word-of-mouth and email to get the message to your family, friends and neighbors who attend OLOL. We emphasize that email addresses will not be shared and will never be used for any purpose other than sending OLOL information.

Please feel free to contact me with any suggestions for improving this process.

Thank You!
