Our Sunday liturgies are inspiring and challenging,  just like as our Ozark winding roads.  We strive to be a friend, make a friend, and share our love of Jesus.

Message for those attending Mass here in Forsyth.

Our Lady of the Ozarks congregation has 90 registered households, totaling 140 members.  Our parish demographics consists mainly of active retired people who have moved to this corner of the Ozarks to enjoy their senior years.  The good news is that we are not retired from serving our God and our neighbor. 

We encourage visitors, converts, reverts and inquirers to join us in giving glory and praise to our God.  Our church seats over 200 comfortably -- so we've got the room!  But come early  if you wish to sit in the back of the church because  that section seems to always fill up first.

Come and celebrate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
