Goodbye, with Love

Wednesday, February 8, 2023

The psalmist says, “Sing to the Lord, bless God’s name.” For the past 26 years we have celebrated so many special liturgies, praying and making beautiful music together! The time has come, difficult as it is for me, to say goodbye, as I retire and begin a new chapter of my life.

I have loved my ministry at Our Lady of the Lakes and will always treasure the beautiful people and loving families I have met over the years. Thank you for all the incredible love and support you have shown me; I am most grateful! Know that you will forever remain in my heart and in my prayers.

May God bless you and keep you. May Our Lady of the Lakes Church continue to be a beacon of hope, light, and love for the community.

With much love,
Sister Helene Kloss, OP

"I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life."
John 8:12


In the Catholic church, light has always had a special significance because it represents Christ. We know that Jesus called himself the Light of the world. Additionally, St. John’s Gospel connects Christ with the imagery of light in John 1:4: “In him was life; and the life was the light of men.”

Lighting a candle for someone living or deceased is a way to both extend your prayers and show solidarity with the person the prayer is being made on behalf of. We also believe in the importance of our prayers for those who have died, asking the Lord to forgive any sins they may have committed due to human frailty, but it is also a great way to keep their memory alive as we honor who they were and the good they did. The faithful also light candles as a sign of gratitude to God for answered prayers.

Here, at Our Lady of the Lakes, we want to offer you this opportunity to pray for all your intentions with the Prayer Candles placed in our lobby.

These candles can be lit for:

  • The health of someone
  • In memory of someone who has passed away
  • In thanksgiving for a grace or favor granted to you
  • The intentions of someone dear to you (living)

To request your Prayer Candle, please fill the online form.
