Our Lady of Lourdes Church (Parish Center)

IMPORTANT NEWS!!!

PARISH PASTORAL
COUNCIL ELECTIONS ARE COMING!

CLICK HERE FOR A DESCRIPTION/EXPLANATION OF THE PASTORAL COUNCIL

CLICK HERE FOR A NOMINATION FORM

If you are a registered parishioner of Our Lady of Lourdes, please consider serving the parish on the Pastoral Council. According to archdiocesan recommendations, we will elect 6 members this November. (3 to a 1-year term. 3 to a 3-year term.) After the election, 3 members are chosen by the pastor, and 2 members will be added from the parish staff and 1 from the finance council. There will be 12 members on the council to advise the pastor and parochial vicar.


 

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! 

***********ATTENTION***********

The parish phones are working, however the voicemail is still problematic.
Email [email protected] after hours.
For emergencies--that would be danger of death--call Fr. Matthew's cell phone.

WELCOME PARISHIONERS & VISITORS

*****UPDATE*****

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.

You will even be able to support the parish from your "smart device" if you so choose.
