  • Empty pantry shelves filled by students

    OLGC students did an amazing job putting their Faith in Action by preparing trail mix bags and cards for The Lamb Center, an organization that works to serve the poor and homeless. Donations were provided by our school community and students worked together with 8th grade moms to create just under 300 packed bags. What a wonderful witness to how our students are able to help those in need.
