Our Lady of Lourdes Blood Drive
Mark your calendars for the upcoming OLOL Blood Drive on Sunday, December 16, 2018.
The Red Cross provides about 40% of our nation’s blood and blood components, all from generous volunteer donors. But supply can’t always meet demand because only about 10% of eligible people donate blood yearly. Each new donor helps with patient needs.
The drive will take place in the gym from 8:00 a.m. to 1 p.m. “Drop Ins” are welcome! Save a life today, give blood!
To signup, go to www.redcrossblood.org and type "LOURDESPAR" in the box on the upper right. Questions? Contact Kathleen Gund at email@example.com or 314-662-0043.
BAPTISM PREPARATION CLASS
All parents who are going to have their child baptized at Our Lady of Lourdes are required to attend a baptism preparation class. Call the rectory to register, 314.726.6200.
ST. JOSEPH PARISH SCHOOL OF RELIGION
Do you have a student in grades pre-k through 8th grade? Religious education is an important component for forming children in the teaching of the Catholic Faith. Classes take place Sunday mornings from 9:30- 10:45 am and on Monday evenings from 5:15- 6:30 pm. Please look into sending your child to St. Joseph for religious education, sacramental preparation, and family formation. Go to the parish website: stjosephclayton.org or call the school office at 727-9059.
HIGH SCHOOL THEOLOGY COURSE
This school year St. Joseph will be offering a course for high school students who are currently attending schools without Catholic theology. The course will be taught on Monday nights from 6:45 to 8:00 pm. This year students will be studying Sacred Scripture. This will be a course equivalent to that which is taught at area Catholic High Schools. For more information on the course please contact the school office at 727-9059 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

New Volunteers at Our Lady of Lourdes:
There are lots of ways to volunteer at Our Lady of Lourdes, and if your volunteer work involves working with children, (sports, school activities, scouts, children's liturgy) or working with adults in need (Homebound Ministry, St. Vincent de Paul, etc.) we DO need your help!
However, these ministries require verification of attendance at a Protecting God's Children Workshop before a volunteer is allowed to assist in a parish. A one-time workshop, and completion of required paperwork must be done for each parish location for which you volunteer. Please consider signing up for a workshop today! Workshops are offered at locations all over the archdiocese. Visit archstl.org for a list of all locations and dates/times.
For more information, please contact Our Lady of Lourdes Child Safety Coordinator, Deb McCarthy at 726-6200.
