OLOL Social Ministry
DAY OF SERVICE
Our Lady of Lourdes' Day of Service is held once a year in October in conjunction with the national "Make a Difference Day." The purpose of the Day of Service is for our parish to visibly give back to the community in a meaningful way with our time, talent and treasure.
The 2017 Day of Service is scheduled for Saturday, October 28th. We hope you will be able to join our parish community as we serve our neighbors. Opportunities include:
October 28th Schedule of Events
7:30am Gather at OLOL and Sign In
8:00am Mass in church
8:30am Depart for Service Sites
12:00pm Fellowship luncheon at University City Community Center | Address: 975 Pennsylvania Ave, St. Louis, MO 63130
How we make people feel (respected, valued, appreciated) is more important that completing the perfect project.
SERVICE SATURDAY VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
As an outgrowth of the annual Day of Service and originally spearheaded by parishioner John Sweeney, the Social Ministry committee is now hosting monthly service events on the 2nd Saturday morning of each month.
Men, women, teens and school groups are invited to participate on a regular or occasional basis to continue the good works throughout the calendar year. No special skills are needed and everyone is welcome. Recent/upcoming projects include:

Let’s join together to build our parish community while we strengthen our neighborhoods. Subscribe to our mailing list for information about each event as it becomes available, and sign up to help when possible.

For September, the Service Saturday Service team will be building a fence to enclose a Mom and Kids play area at Good Shepherd Home in northern University City. We will be digging post holes, mixing/pouring concrete, setting posts and assembling the vinyl fencing. Hope you can join us!
