Celebrating 100 Years
Just over a century ago our vibrant parish was no more than an idea in Archbishop John Glennon’s head. The westward growth of St. Louis after the 1904 World’s Fair created increasing pressure for new Catholic parishes. After appointing Father Francis O’Connor to establish a church and school on a newly purchased plot on Forsyth Boulevard, our parish was formed.
Thus begins the story of Our Lady of Lourdes. It was on May 7, 1916 when Our Lady of Lourdes parish celebrated the first Mass in the little stucco chapel erected by Father Francis J. O’Connor (Pastor 1916-1946). The chapel was located just east of the present rectory. The year 2016 marks the 100th anniversary of this blessed parish and it is with several events that everyone will celebrate a century of faith and community.
