Currently we continue evolving...
- Our parish celebrates four weekend Masses, including a Spanish Mass.
- We answer the call of our Baptism by serving the Lord and each other.
- We pray together.
- We dream of the future that becomes the history of our parish.
We are fortunate to have Father Rick L. Jones as Pastor of Our Lady of the Lake, Branson plus Our Lady of the Ozarks, Forsyth. Our Associate Pastor Father Simon Enudu helps by celebrating Sunday Mass at Our Lady of the Ozarks and steps in to celebrate at Our Lady of the Lake when Father Rick presides at Our Lady of the Ozarks.
We are about 5% Catholic across southern Missouri, with 475 active families, and routinely welcome 2,500 to 3,000 "Parishioners-For-A-Day" to the Lord's Eucharistic table each weekend. Our "Parishioners-For-A-Day" join us at Daily Mass and Eucharistic Adoration in our Blessed Mother Teresa Chapel.
Our many ministries are active within the parish and reach out to the surrounding community we call "home".
Feel free to check our many ministries and join us as your time allows. Check out our dreams that have become our history!
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
