One More For the Road - A Car Parade to Cheer up Parishioners

You may have seen a group of cars rolling through the Euclid neighborhoods in Our Lady of the Lake car parade on Sunday, August 2nd at 1pm.  The car parade was planned in an effort for parish staff to reach out to those who are home bound and show support for the parish community.  

Melissa Gali-Bird, Music Director at Our Lady of the Lake, took part with other parish staff members in contacting parishioners to check on them since the Covid directives began in March.  Feedback from those phone calls pointed to a need for the parish to reach out to those parishioners who are stuck at home.  "Many parishioners told us that they are lonely and missing the folks they often see at Mass.  Many of these people are not attending Mass because they are in a high risk group, Mrs. Gali-Bird said.  "So we set out to create a car parade to let parishioners know that we are thinking of them and that we love and miss them", she explained.  People got their lawn chairs out and waved from their driveways. Some parishioners even joined in the car parade. All in all the car parade reminded everyone how important reaching out can be!
