Do you need to schedule an event on campus?
All events require a Facilities Request Form to be submitted.

OLGC is not comfortable having any elementary and middle school youth activities or sports activities on campus until possibly the summer. We are trying to take every possible precaution to keep the school children and staff as safe and healthy as possible at this point. Our COVID Task Force meets monthly and continues to monitor and assess the situation that constantly changes and develops.
All events on campus must follow these Event Guidelines, Outdoor Guidelines, and all in-person non-liturgical activities require attendees to fill out the COVID-Waiver.
