How to Send Palanca

Who can forget the JOY that came to you on your Weekend in the form on the Palanca Notes on your bed.  Now you can pass on that joy by writing palanca yourself to the Team and Guests of our upcoming Weekends. 

Palanca will be distributed three times during the Weekend, two on Saturday and one on Sunday.  Handwritten notes seem to be the most appreciated.  One alternate some use is to print out a particular poem or meaningful meme for all to recieve and then add a short handwritten message for the personal touch. 

The easiest way to "send" your palanca is to give them to a Team member or someone you know who is already going up to OLC.  Just remeber to allow extra time if sending it to the person by mail.  It is anticipated we will always post an address of a Team Member who you could mail items to if you don't have a Team member at your church. 

We recommend that Members get together for “Palanca Parties” to enjoy fellowship with each other as you create palanca for the Team and Guests.

Please do not include gifts unless you are sending one to each person.  Since there may be 36 people on the Weekend, the Auxes would appreciate it if the gifts going to people's bedroom be small and lightweight (bookmarks, pins, etc.) as they have a long way to walk.  Heavy or bulky items are best passed out in the Conference Room. 

An excellent way to feel a part of the Weekend is to drive your palanca up to OLC during the Weekend playing praise music in your car as you drive up and back.  (Just don't drive up BEFORE the Weekend as OLC is not set up to receive items before the Weekend.)  To deliver palanca during the Weekend, enter the grounds of OLC and proceed straight up the long driveway, parking in the Upper Parking Lot.  The first side entrance on the left end of the building is where the Palanca Drop Box is located.  An auxiliary will be checking the box regularly during the weekend so that items can be distributed in a timely manner.  The box contains Guest Lists; as well as lists of those Guests and/or Team members needing additional notes.  Please feel free to take one/a few of these lists with you if you will have the opportunity to use it or share it with others.  There is currently no place to write blessings at OLC.


Conference Room Palanca items can be left beside the box, but be sure that there are no obstructions in front of any of the doors.  

Please respect the quiet of OLC and the Sisters who are graciously welcoming us into their home.
