OLOH Church is where I was baptized, where my children were baptized. i went to school there as well as my children. People ask, "what parish are you going to join?" To be honest, I don't know if I am. I am so saddened by this, and I really can't imagine going anywhere else. It was home.Father Joyce was family as well as the parishioners. I pray for guidance. Until I feel it in my heart, as to what parish I will join, I will continue my journey...

I agree, generations of my family were baptised thru laid to rest within OLOHope and heartbroken at the closure. In my opinion, a terrible decision was made. My journey has a hiccup regarding this and will take a while, if ever, to find that stability I found within those walls. Maybe just need to have the relationship between God and myself, without the institution, but I'll miss it.
