Sunday's Mass time is 8:30 am --- yes it's early but personal sacrifice and receiving God's grace is what we live for....and it allows our priest to celebrate the 10:30 am Mass in Branson.
Bring a friend, make a friend, share your love of Jesus.
Message for those attending Mass here in Forsyth.
Our Lady of the Ozarks congregation has 90 registered households, about 150 members. We are small in size but have big hearts. Our parish demographics consists mainly of seasoned retired folk who have moved into the lake area. The good news is that they are not retired from serving our God and the larger Forsyth community.
We encourage visitors, converts, reverts and inquiries 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.
