This past Tuesday my eyes were again opened…... to the incredible gifts of our parishioners and how important your gifts are to our shared life of faith at Our Lady of Lourdes. I have said on many occasions that Lourdes is the most talented community, per capita, that I have been a part of as a priest. Tuesday brought this reality home in an inspiring manner. Let me recount the day. When I arrived at the office Tuesday morning, parishioner Jamie Schmidt was at the front desk as she has graciously agreed to help the parish until we hire an office manager. In the afternoon parishioner Betty Carland took her place at the front desk where she volunteers weekly as a receptionist and in helping with various parish projects. Parishioner Deb Hamilton also came to the parish office Tuesday to work with Julie Ditter and Jamie to prepare for Wednesday’s finance council meeting and to help bring more order to our parish finances.
