FEAST DAY JOY
A certain peace enveloped us all at the Feast Day celebrations last Saturday. In thankfulness, we presented Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception with a Rosary Bouquet and received infinite blessings at Mass, celebrated by Fr Dan. We rejoice to know that Lourdes' miracles do happen at OLOL too, as Our Lady answers our Letters of Petitions which are taken to her Shrines in Rome and Singapore. In sharing lunch together, we celebrate not only the sizzling delights, but also, our friendships and return to health ... thank you Mother Mary and Jesus!
