Come Learn about Catholic Faith

YOU ARE INVITED! COME & LEARN ABOUT THE CATHOLIC FAITH—AND HOW TO LIVE IT:Are you or someone you know interested in learning more about the Catholic Church? Perhaps you’ve been thinking of becoming a member of Our Lady of Lourdes, or you are just curious about what Catholics believe and why. Maybe you or someone you know is not baptized, was baptized in another faith tradition, or was baptized Catholic but has not received the sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Eucharist—and wants to receive fully the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). Please join us on Wednesday, September 17, 6:30-7:45pm, in the St. Mary's Elementary School, 301 East 9th, for our first RCIA session of the year. All adults are welcome!  If you’d like more information, call the parish office, e-mail Peggy Fleming at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Online Parish Survey - Complete Now!

 
As part of our Faith Forward process, we are asking all parishioners at Our Lady of Lourdes to complete an online Parish Survey by September 5.

https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/ololsurvey

A short version of the survey was done during Masses on August 23-24.  You are encouraged to complete the online version in addition to the short version done at Masses.  There are different questions that will allow us to gain more specific feedback. The electronic version can only be accessed once per electronic device so it's mainly one per family; however,  a household with two adults can each take it  if you wish but you would have to use a computer and a tablet or mobile device.  If you have any questions or problems accessing the survey, please contact Frances Mitchelson, Director of Parish Relations at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Thanks for your involvement in helping with the strategic plan for our parish family.
