Our Lady of the Lakes Parish was established by the merger of the former St. Catherine and St. James Parish Families by a proclamation of Bishop George V. Murry, S.J. on October 7, 2010. This merger produced a parish that is one of the largest in geographical area in the Diocese, while the country charm and family focus has remained. Both church buildings remain in active use with weekend mass offered at both sites. A monthly alternating schedule for the Saturday vigil gives the entire parish community the opportunity to conveniently worship.
