OLA is blessed with a wonderful pastor -- Fr. Charles Ramirez -- who became our shepherd July 1, 2009. He is supported in his pastoral ministry by two associate pastors -- Fr. Chris Troxell and Fr. Dominic Tran -- both new additions to the OLA staff since 2009. Msgr. Peter O'Reilly, a resident in retirement at Pilgrim Place, has returned to OLA parish since serving as an associate here in the 1970's and 1980's.
OLA is blessed also with two deacon couples -- Deacon Bob Steighner serves as OLA"s liturgy coordinator, and Deacon John Tullius coordinates the JustFaith Program and outreach ministries to the homeless. They are joined in ministry to the OLA faith community by their spouses, Kathy Steighner and Joyce Tullius. Deacon Art and Nadine Escovedo are officially "retired" but still active in ministry at OLA.
