prayinghands-01There are various groups within the parish that meet now and then, or that have specific ministries or functions that do not otherwise fit into any other category. These are mostly organizations of Catholics who gather, empowered by the Spirit, and with the blessing of the parish pastor, to pray, to study, and to serve others within the broader community. Some may also be organizations of the broader community that OLM hosts. Some of the small groups include the following:



Women of Grace (parochial):
All women of the parish are invited to join a Catholic Study Course for Women. The group began with a program developed by Johnnette Benkovic on EWTN. We have evolved to using a program by…formally Symbolon which is a study of the Catholic Faith. In addition, we have time as a team to pray and study women saints.  This is a free program and you do not have to attend each month. Come when you can and if you would like the schedule please email  Maria Lane at or call 706-253- 3948. We meet the third Thursday of each month at 6:30 pm in the Barn. Come for the fellowship and become the woman of grace that God has created you to be.
