There are a number of exciting events and initiatives currently or soon to take place at Lourdes. I wanted to highlight some of these and also update you on important information and developments. To be sure, Our Lady of Lourdes has moved from a sleepy boutique parish to a vibrant community of faith. I credit this to God’s enduring grace, Our Lady’s efficacious intercession and your faith and commitment. Our Jubilee year is well underway with exciting events on the horizon. I pray that this Jubilee Year will be a time of renewal, blessing and growth for, as Archbishop Hebda recently described on Relevant Radio, this jewel of a parish.

If signed into law, the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit will help more kids from low- and middle-income families access a quality education. Let's ask our state representatives to ensure that the Opportunity Scholarship Tax Credit stays in the tax bill. Click here to send a message to your lawmaker!
