Faith in Our Future

Reminder of Timeline and Plan

July 1, 2019 – June 30, 2020: The parishes of St. Mary of the Lake and St. Anthony will remain separate parishes, but, will be "linked” by having the same Pastor.

July 1, 2020: The parishes of St. Mary of the Lake and St. Anthony will merge and be given a new name to be determined by our bishop. The newly merged parish will have separate Masses in three languages: English, Polish, and Spanish. It will continue to own and use the worship sites of St. Mary’s, St. Anthony’s, and Holy Family. These sites will retain their current names. The new parish will continue to own Holy Family School and St. Mary of the Lake Cemetery. There are no plans at this time in the parish or diocese to sell off any of these properties.

The new parish will have over 5,000 families. It will have nearly 1,000 children in religious education. And, it will continue to host The Polish School.


New Parish Resource:

FORMED Network

Our parish has joined FORMED, an online website that contains Catholic videos, and downloadable audio or e-books. The site contains series on Catholic Theology and Spirituality. Over the course of next few years, we will be utilizing these resources for group formation such as Bible studies, catechist enrichment, prayer groups, and small faith sharing groups.

The resources on FORMED can be used just by individuals, or, used in group settings. Of note is a weekly commentary on the Sunday readings and a series on basic Catholic theology called “Symbolon.”

The FORMED website is available to all registered parishioners and everyone who live within the parish boundaries, which is the boundaries of Lakewood. To access the website, you need to register first. You do that by:

  1. Go to formed.org on your web browser
  2. Click the button: ENTER CODE
  3. Enter our parish code, all caps: YRP6YV
  4. Enter your name, email, and a password. In the future, the next time you enter the FORMED site, all you will need is to enter your email address and password. On most web browsers, they have a feature that will automatically enter your info when you log on, if you care to use it to make logging on easier in the future. Since this is not a high target web site for hackers (we doubt anyone would want to steal your FORMED access), we suggest you keep your password simple and different from your high-value websites, such as your online banking. The site does require that the password contain at least one number and one special character (such as: ! $ #). Write your password down and keep it in a handy place.

Once you’re in, explore the site’s resources!
