Contact the JETS Captains for more information:
JETS is a one-of-a-kind Airline, always searching for new and interesting adventures. Our group helps women from OLPH Parish to connect with other women and bond through faith, to also create community and bring a sense of comfort and welcoming feel to our large Parish. Many consider JETS a beautiful sacred sisterhood and a powerful support system.
JETS flies far and near, but often reserves Service Flights just for our Parish; in the past few years we have hosted a Game Show Pastors’ Appreciation, Youth Alpha Luncheons, Altar Server Themed-Dinners, Welcoming Events, Soup & Bread suppers, Lenten Rosary evenings and so much more!
We board to our flight most every Friday morning, from September to June, and a great many of these destinations take place in the Large Meeting Room, located in the church’s lower level. Departure Time is around 9:40am with boarding passes issued by 9:30am.
All are welcome to hop on-board as often as you wish, when your travel schedule allows, or when a certain destination interest you. No pre-booking is necessary and seats remain wide-open for you to fly with us this flight schedule, whether once a month or once a season.
We are again thrilled to offer in-flight beverages and light snacks served by our lovely Flight Attendants (snack volunteers). If you need childcare, kindly contact one of the JETS Flight Captains: Aida Damouni @ 780-922-2156 or Nancy Ferguson @ 780-464-5356.
A complete itinerary of all flights can be obtained on our JETS website at http://jets-olph.com and weekly messages are also published in the Parish Bulletin.
We believe strongly that travel opens the mind, strengthens the body, and feeds the soul…so what are you waiting for?
All you have to do is climb on-board, buckle up and let our entire crew show you a first-class experience like you’ve never experienced before!
