WELCOME PARISHIONERS & VISITORS
**** JANUARY 4TH, 2023****
A continued Merry Christmas to all of you. Thurday morning, January 5th, 2023 Fr. Scottston Brentwood and I will celebrate Mass with the local community at the Mercedarian Provincialate in Rome. Following the Mass we will watch Pope Benedict XVI's funeral on television and then depart for the airport for the journey to India. I thank you for your prayers and ask that they continue. It seems that the Lord is asking me to do a little purgation. After recovering from the flu, I have (re)injured my back and experienced a serious flare up of sciatica--something that I have not experienced for almost ten years. [I have already booked an appointment with my chiroptactor the day after my return to Philadelphia.] Please pray that I will be an asset to our visitation to India and not a hindrance.
You are in able hands with Fr. Justin, who is also recovering from the flu, and Denise Baker who is our right hand. Please keep them, our whole staff, Br. Martin and Br. Dominic under the protection of your prayers. They are a constant support to me as are you. I hold you all dearly in my heart, and will miss you over the next month.
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
Enjoy the great Catholic content (videos, audio, & books) courtesy of our generous parish.
