50th An50th anniversaryniversary Year:
Many have asked – “If the Parish was established in October of 1967, why are we celebrating our 50th Anniversary starting this October in the year 2016?”

The easiest way to clarify this is by example. From the day we are born we begin the “count-down” to our first birthday and on that day we have completed our first year of life.

So it is with our 50th Anniversary year. We will begin our countdown to our 50th “birthday” starting on October 8, 2016. We as a parish on that date will be entering our 50th year and during the coming months we will celebrate together at many events with our last celebration scheduled for October 7, 2017 – the date we will have completed our 50th year as the Parish of Our Lady of Guadalupe.

So please remember to mark your calendars for our Anniversary “kick-off” Mass on Saturday, October 8, 2016. As that date comes closer…please watch the bulletin for more Anniversary information or check out our Parish Web Page. (www.olg.cc).

During the 50th Anniversary Year, current and past members of the church, along with the community at large, are invited to attend all events that are planned. Just a few on the agenda include a Movie and Bonfire Night to be held on the Parish grounds, Night at the Races, a Family Bowling Sunday, Our Lady of Guadalupe Feast Day Mass and Fiesta, a Family Dance Night, Easter Celebration Brunch, O.L.G. Softball Game and Picnic, a Day of Reflection as well as speaker events held throughout the year. As event dates approach, more information will be available on the O.L.G. web site (www.olg.cc), through local news media and in the church Sunday bulletins.
