Our Lady of Lourdes School (K-8)
Our Lady of Lourdes is a Catholic elementary school whose mission is to provide spiritual formation and academic instruction to children in kindergarten through eighth grade. We are a community of students, teachers and parents committed to excellence and working together to foster a sense of social responsibility and a belief in the teachings of Jesus Christ. We recognize that each student is a unique individual and we strive to help all students reach their potential in a safe, Christian environment.
More School Information
Our Lady of Lourdes Parish began with its first Mass celebrated by Father Francis J. O’Connor on May 7, 1916. Mass was celebrated in the little stucco chapel he erected at his expense just east of the present rectory. On October 14, 1917 Archbishop John J. Glennon laid the cornerstone for the permanent church and dedicated the church on October 26, 1919.
In September 1917, the parish school began with four pupils in the home of Mrs. Clemence Benoist Faris just west of the church, now the Parish Center. When the rectory was completed in 1918, the school moved to the rectory library with 14 students. In 1919, on completion of the new church, the school made up of 31 students moved to the little stucco chapel. There St. Joseph’s Sisters Thomasine and Gertrude took charge.
