Welcome to Our Lady of Tahoe!
Parish Mission Statement: As disciples of Jesus Christ, and in the name of Mary, Our Lady of Tahoe Catholic Community welcomes and embraces all those who come to us. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, through worship, the sacraments and loving service, we provide for each other's spiritual and material needs. In being so nourished, we reach out in faith to serve the larger community.
Ordinary Time refers to a season of the Christian liturgical calendar, particularly the calendar of the ordinary form of the Roman rite of the Catholic Church, although some other churches in Western Christianity also use the term. The English name "Ordinary time" translates the Latin term tempus per annum (literally "time through the year").
Since 1970 in the ordinary form of the Roman rite in the Catholic Church, Ordinary Time comprises two periods: one beginning on the day after the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord (the end of the Christmas season) and ending on the day before Ash Wednesday, the other beginning on the Monday after Pentecost (the conclusion of Eastertide) and continuing until the Saturday before Advent Sunday (The First Sunday of Advent).
The Church numbers the weeks of Ordinary Time. Several Sundays bear the name of feasts or solemnities celebrated on those days, including Trinity Sunday and the Feast of Christ the King. The liturgical color normally assigned to Ordinary Time is green. MORE AT WIKIPEDIA.ORG....
Father Oliver will begin another Scripture class on December 3rd. We will be studying the book of Romans. The classes are held on Wednesdays at 10:00 AM in the parish hall. Usually, about a dozen people attend these classes. It's a comfortable and informal environment, and all are welcome. Please join us!
Building Up the Church - Catholic Services Appeal 2014
We continue to pursue this year’s CSA, the Bishop’s annual appeal to each parish. These monies are used for the Proclamation of the Gospel, as the Church reaches out to those in need on a Diocesan level.
Father Oliver knows you will all make the necessary sacrifice and join him in making a generous contribution in accordance with your means, which can be paid off with a one-time gift, or installments throughout the year.

Anything over and above our assessment of $34,611.31 will be returned to our parish. Let us pray for the success of this year’s CSA. A word of thanks to Jan Roman Gonzales, CSA chair, and Sam & Sharon Sealana, who are assisting Jan.
