WELCOME PARISHIONERS & VISITORS
We are slowly, but surely, getting the Rectory/Parish Center at 6315 Lancaster Avenue in order after moving from 1941 Wynnewood Road. There is still a plenty to do. We can still use help! This week, the goal is to bet the "Lourdes Living Room" (see below) in order for our youth group to use it on Monday, September 26th.
The secretary's office is on the first floor in one of the parlors. The other parlor will be used for small meetings. [That parlor is still a mess.] The second floor will feature what we will call the "Lourdes Living Room" in the friars old community room, the priests' office, a "break room" for the staff, the DRE's office, and the bookkeepers office. The 3rd floor will be used for hospitality for the friars' guests and/or visiting priests as well as extra storage for vestments and church decor. In addition, one small room on the 3rd floor is an office for the St. Raymond Nonnatus Foundation for Freedom, Family, and Faith when it is needed. We are still in need of volunteers to help go through years of accumulated "stuff", so the parish center can be functional. The sooner we get things cleaned up, the more efficiently we can serve your needs in Christ.
If you are new to Our Lady of Lourdes and would like to register, please complete the basic contact information at the top of the right hand column. This is NOT a full registration form, but rather a contact form that will allow the parish secretary to reach out to you to obtain more detailed information.
You will also see on the homepage the WESHARE link! WeShare is a an electronic giving platform that has advantages over the platform that we are currently using. In addition to being more flexible, it gives you ALL of the control over giving. You will be able to make one-time contributions or repeating contributions to both regular collections and special collections and projects. You will even be able to support the parish from your "smart device" if you so choose.
On the Home menu scroll down to see our photo albums. Thanks to Nanci Sumner for taking the beautiful photos at Our Lady of Lourdes. Nanci has become our official unofficial photographer! Other photos come from the friars and anonymous contributors.
Below you will also see the form to sign up for FLOCKNOTE. FLOCKNOTE allows us to reach you more easily, keeping you updated and connected to the parish. We are able to target our communications to areas in which you are interested, so you will not be inundated with seemingly useless communications.
Finally, our parishioners are welcome to sign up for

TIME IS RUNNING OUT!
I PRAY THAT IT IS NOT TOO LATE!
WE LOVE OUR MUSIC DIRECTOR REBECCA OSTERMANN!
SHE LOVES OUR LADY OF LOURDES!
SHE IS A PROFESSIONAL MUSICIAN, A WOMAN OF FAITH, AND IS DISCERNING GOD'S WILL.
THERE ARE OTHERS WHO WANT HER AS THEIR MUSIC DIRECTOR!
WE MUST SHOW THAT WE WANT HER MORE!
IT IS NOT ABOUT MONEY, BUT ABOUT PARTICIPATION!
IF WE DO NOT EXPAND THE CHOIR, WE WILL LOSE HER TO A PARISH THAT CAN GUARANTEE A LARGER CHOIR!
THIS IS NOT HYPERBOLE, BUT REALITY!
Why does it matter? Because if we do not stand up against the overreach, we will be next!!! Violent felons walk the streets and are released on little to no bail, yet a man who defends his child from the harrassment of an adult faces federal prison!
