Our Mission Statement
Our Lady of Lourdes Parish is the People of God gathered and united as a family through celebration of the liturgy, the study of Scripture and the pursuit of our mutual goal: eternal life.
Our parish mission is to pray, to study, to teach and to serve as Jesus did. We strive to love one another so that we all rejoice in times of joy, share in times of prosperity, give comfort in times of stress and help in times of need. Relying on the Providence of God and asking for guidance of the Holy Spirit, we continue Christ's mission on earth through our parish ministries - giving generously of ourselves, our blessings and our talents. Through such gifting, we build up the Body of Christ in our parish, in our community, in our archdiocese and in our world.
MEN'S A.C.T.S. RETREAT
An ACTS retreat is a three-day lay-directed retreat. The retreat begins on Thursday evening and ends Sunday at a Mass celebrated with the parish community. Retreats for men and retreats for women are given separately. Scripture and the teachings of the Church are the guides for the retreats. The retreat consists of sacraments, spiritual exercises, reflection time and talks centered around the theme of the retreat.
All men of Our Lady of Lourdes are encouraged to save the dates of November 13-16, 2014 for the next ACTS retreat. This is a great opportunity to take some personal time with God.
