OLG School Jogathon

jog-a-thon-iconOur Lady of Guadalupe School is having its 13th Annual Jog-A-Thon on Thursday, January 29th, 2015 during Catholic Schools Week. All students will participate and may walk, jog, or run to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to healthy lifestyles. All proceeds will go towards enhancing our technology program.

Here’s how it works

  • Students get sponsors (as many as possible!) to sign up and pledge money in one of two ways: a specific amount per lap, or a one-time pledge. Sponsors can be friends, grandparents, aunts, uncles, godparents, work colleagues, etc. Consider reaching out to relatives across the country! For safety reasons, students should not go house to house seeking pledges unless accompanied by an adult.
  • On the day of the Jog-A-Thon, the students run/jog/walk as many laps as they can in 20 minutes.
  • Students then go back to their sponsors and collect the amounts pledged. For example, if a sponsor pledges $1.00 per lap and the student run 10 laps, the student would collect $10.00 from that sponsor. Sponsor sheets are due to your child’s teacher by January 27th and will be returned to the student for collection immediately following the event.

Look What’s New This Year!

This year, Mrs. Beuder, Father Joe, and some of our staff are participating in the jog-a-thon. Ask your teacher if they are walking/running and want to be sponsored! Attached is the Sponsor Sheet. It is due to your child’s teacher no later than January 27th, 2015. Please note that each child must have their own sponsor sheet. Siblings may not share sponsor sheets We need every family’s support to make this year’s Jog-a-thon our best ever!

If you have questions or want to help, please call or e-mail: Kathy Fontanetta at (310) 547-7205, or kathyfont@verizon.net

Open Invitation – Catholic Men’s Fellowship

Open Invitation – Catholic Men’s Fellowship – OLG Men’s Group meets 1st and 3rd Saturdays each month – Come Join us

We meet on the 1st and 3rd Saturday mornings from 7:00am – 8:30 am at Tomboy’s Restaurant in Lawndale (the one behind Costco on Marine Ave.) At our breakfasts we break bread and discuss our lives in the light of our Catholic faith through friendship, prayer and fraternity.

We cultivate deep friendships among fellow parishioners, have fun, and learn from one another how to be a better husband, father, son, employee, Christian man and Catholic parishioner. Spiritual growth and accountability become factors as we get to know each other.

Typically a meeting begins with prayer. Then a scripture passages or a teaching is presented. In our meetings, we are challenged to interact and adopt an action point for the coming week or two. Meetings close with prayer.

For more information please call Christopher Barnes at 310-686-2314 or email him at larainmkr@gmail.com.
