About Us

As Catholics, we represent about 5% of the total population in the heart of the Ozarks in southwest Missouri. We are about 500 active families in the center of the Bible Belt working toward becoming a stronger Stewardship Parish.

We are fortunate to have Father J. Friedel as our Pastor and Father Samson Dorival, SMM as our Associate Pastor. They both preside over our parish here in Branson, as well as Our Lady of the Ozarks in Forsyth.

Here at Our Lady of the Lake, we are normally joined by 1,200 to 1,500 visitors or "Parishioners-for-a-Day" in celebrating the four weekend Masses including a Spanish/English Mass. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are limiting the number of parishioners and visitors to 300 per Mass. This allows for generous physical distancing and no reservation is needed to attend Mass. We continually pray that our visitors may be refreshed and renewed by their time in the Ozarks.

You are welcome to follow any of the helpful links below:

  • See Mass Times for in-person or live-streaming Masses
  • Check out our List of Ministries that are active within the parish and reach out to the surrounding community we call "home".  

  • See Parish Calendar for all liturgical celebrations and parish activities

  • How can we pray with you? 

We are eternally indebted to our parish family, our countless guests, both past and present, and the Branson community for their support through prayer, time, talent, and resources for the ultimate achievement of our goals. 

"So runs the history of the church in Taney County. Many priests have come and gone through the years and a number have passed on to their eternal rest. A true complete history of this church in this vacation spot will only be known in eternity."

Rev. James F. McKenna, 5-14-1954

Our Parish Mission
We, the parish of Our Lady of the Lake, united in baptism and empowered by the Spirit, endeavor to live our commitment to proclaim God's love by:
  • being a welcoming parish community,
  • worshipping, working, and celebrating together,
  • serving the spiritual and material needs of all,
  • spreading the Gospel through personal witness,
  • inviting each parishioner to active participation in our parish life and in surrounding communities,
  • and, through our unique call, welcoming our many visitors.   
We share our gifts and ourselves in the name of Jesus.
