Our Giving Supports

General Offertory & Parish Ministries

General offertory supports the overall work of the parish, including our Outreach ministries like Mercy Teams and St. Vincent de Paul; Faith Formation for all ages and ministry and program expenses; priest and staff salaries and benefits; reserves; and the Archdioces of Portland in Oregon. Gifts and donations may always be designated to specific ministries or programs. 

Faithful to Our Mission Capital Campaign

Our Lady of the Lake has been adding to and renewing our campus over the past 10 years and we have more to do in the future. Currently our goal is to raise $6 Million by 2022 to pay for the next phase which includes a renewed parish hall, kitchen, elevator and access for all, and sanctuary improvements. 

Endowment

We strive to make Catholic education available for all who desire it for their children through our parish school. Gifts to endowment help grow the corpus so that income earned supports finanical aid and other necessary improvements. 

Ways to Give

In addition to online giving, Pushpay, and cash/check, you can also give to OLL in the following ways:

Securities

The Archdiocese of Portland acts as the agent for these gifts with all funds coming to the parish as you choose. When filling out the form, be sure to designate OLL on “For the benefit of” line to make sure your gift comes to our parish.

Planned Gifts-Bequests

A legacy gift from your will or estate plan will be directed as you wish when you go home to God. Knowing of your intention helps the parish know how to direct such a gift and we acknowledge this legacy gift during your lifetime. 

Purchase a Brick

The final phase of our Building in Faith project was the completion of the commemorative walkway. The walkway connects the church to the Parish Center which houses the OLL School and Parish Offices. The one hundred foot walkway of bricks and pavers passes in front of our Blessed Mother Statue.

 

A personalized commemorative brick or paver can be purchased at anytime for yourself, a loved one, your business, or in memoriam. Your brick or paver will be engraved with your selected name or phrase and will become a lasting tribute, paving the way for generations to come.

 

Download the Order Form below (or pick one up at the office) and send in to Georgeann. Call the office with questions.

Retired Religious – December 12, 2021

Help aging religious. Elderly Catholic sisters, brothers, and religious order priests have offered their lives in service to others—educating the young, comforting the sick, and ministering to the less fortunate. Today, many are frail and need assistance. Your gift to the Retirement Fund for Religious helps furnish medications, nursing care, and more.  To learn more about this second collection or to donate directly to them, please visit: https://retiredreligious.org/ways-to-give/
