Plans are in the works to be able to reopen Our Lady of the Lake in the next few weeks. The Parish Council is meeting at 9 am via Zoom on Monday March 1 to discuss when the church may be open for Mass. The City of McCall has reinstated the mask mandate and there is a $100 fine if you are cited by the McCall police. Those with medical exemptions need to have written confirmation of their exemption if they want to be avoid being cited. The state remains in Stage 3 of reopening, and indoor gatherings are limited to 50 people or less, with distancing and masking protocols in place.
Please continue to wear masks and maintain physical distancing for the health and safety of everyone. Being outdoors does not eliminate the risk of transmission if other measures are not followed.
For the sake of everyone, if you feel ill in any way, please do not attend Mass. Video masses are posted weekly.

Father Bruno Segatta
Father Bruno was born in Trento, Italy, a mountain town in the Dolomites of northern Italy. He was recruited by Bishop Treinen to the Diocese of Boise, and ordained in 1974. After five years as an assistant pastor in Boise, he completed graduate studies in art in 1982 at Cal State Northridge, CA. Granted a leave of absence from the Diocese in 1982, he became Dean of Students for the Gonzaga-in-Florence program until 2003. Since returning to Idaho, Fr. Bruno has continued to answer God's call to serve the parishioners of Idaho as a Sacramental Minister. He remains busy with painting, bicycling, and skiing. He also loves teaching, cooking, and travel.
Some parish history....
Our Lady of the Lake was first called Our Lady Of Perpetual Help, and was established in 1916, as a mission of St. John the Evangelist Cathedral in Boise, Idaho. The first Catholic church building in McCall is now the Alpine Theater, on Roosevelt Avenue on the east side of Payette Lake.
In 1963, Father John Koelsch, became the first resident pastor. Under his leadership, the present church was built and dedicated in 1964 as Our Lady Of The Lake. The church was remodeled to its present configuration in 1993.
Parish Feast Day
The feast Day of the Parish is celebrated on August 15th, the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Some parish facts...
Our parish is huge. In sheer size, it is over 9,000 square miles, extending from the Boise County line in the south to the Salmon River in the north, from Adams County in the west to the Frank Church/River of No Return Wilderness in the east. It comprises over 10 per cent of the area of the state of Idaho. The parish is also larger than the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Rhode Island and Vermont!
