We spent 5 glorious but busy days in Rome. I celebrated Mass at the alter an tomb of St. Pope John Paul ll. Then two peaceful days in beautiful Assisi. Yesterday was a full day of travel, bus trip back to Rome, fly to Lisbon, bus trip to hotel near Fatima. Today we go to Fatima to visit apparition sites, and homes of 3 children. Think of you and pray for you all every day! With Love and Prayers, Fr. LeRoy

Welcome to our faith communities.

Our Shepherd Father LeRoy Schik


In the 21st Centry, the Lord is calling the whole church to the great work of 'new evangellization,' that is, of helping every Christian grow in the knowledge, understanding and love of their Catholic faith in order to propose and hand faith to others. As you become more acquainted with us, we hope that you will find an area in which to share time and talent with our parish family. Like any family, we function most efficiently when all our members involve themselves in parish life. One of the most important parts of the Catholic Church is teh parish, because the parish impacts people's lives. It is in the parish setting that we receive the Body and Blood of Christ, listen to the Word of God proclaimed, find forgiveness of our sins in reconcilation, communal support, and ways to give life to our faith. The parish is a living breathing entity because in it, God interacts with His people. We hope that this will be your experience with Our Lady of the Lake and St. James in Maine, and that you will find warmth and hospitality in a spiritually and emotionally nourishing environment. 

We welcome you to our Parish Family! 
Sincerely, Fr. LeRoy Schik
