This past weekend at Lourdes we formally began our Jubilee year, which celebrates the 140th anniversary of the parish. We did so on the Feast of the Epiphany of the Lord where we celebrate the Divine manifestation of God and God’s glory through his Incarnate Son, Jesus Christ. We are called to respond to God’s manifestation in our world with joy, and like the three Wise Men by offering Christ the gifts we have for the glory of God. Below, I provide excerpts from my homily wherein I outlined the important dimensions of how we will mark this important event in the life of our parish.
We'll kickoff our Jubilee year celebration with a tailgate party loaded with football, food and fellowship!
Join us Sunday, January 8th, starting at noon in the Great Hall of the church. Bring your favorite tailgate potluck dish, burgers and dogs will be available for purchase. Everyone welcome!
We appreciate the generous spirit of our parish family and friends! There are several items on the Our Lady of Lourdes parish "Wish List" this year and your consideration is most appreciated.
