Giving

At Our Lady of the Lake, we strive to build up our community of faith and be Christ to others through the power of our generous giving and with our beautiful facilities. We give in the following ways...

Faithful to Our Mission Capital Campaign

Our Lady of the Lake has been adding 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. 

$6 Million by 2022 $6 Million

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. 

$3 Million by 2020 $3 Million

Ministries

Gifts may always be designated to the ministry of your choice. 

Ways to Give

Give Now

Online

With online giving you may schedule when you give. Giving regularly and sacrifically creates a solid financial foundation for the work of the parish. 

Checks or Cash

Some prefer to give regularly through the plate or by sending checks to the office. These gifts are directed as you wish. If you need envelopes, contact the parish office. 

Securities

The Archdiocese of Portland acts as the agent for these gifts with all funds coming to the parish as you choose. 

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 is the completion of the commemorative walkway. The walkway will connect the church to our new Parish Center and Education Center. The one hundred foot walkway of bricks and pavers will pass in front of our new reflective courtyard with our Blessed Mother Statue.
