  • Transitions

    In the life of many parish communities, this is a season of transition. For us at OLGC, we have some transitions this spring as well. I would like to announce them and use categories to help explain the nature of those changes. Pardon the length of this announcement, but I hope this method will help give a framework for them and answer some questions you may have.
