Thanksgiving Prayer before Dinner 

O Lord our God and heavenly Father,
in your indescribable mercy
you have provided food and drink
for the nourishment of our bodies.
Grant us peace
to use these gifts from your hands
with thankful, reverent hearts.
Let your blessing rest on these your gifts,
to our comfort and health.
Grant, good Lord,
that as we hunger and thirst for this food for our bodies,
so may our souls earnestly long after
the Bread of eternal Life,
Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Amen.

Please read the announcement from His Excellency, Bishop Crosby, to Parishioners regarding an Update on COVID-19 Protocols:

https://hamiltondiocese.com/uploads/docs/Coronavirus/2020UpdateOnCOVID-19ProtocolsOctober7.pdf?fbclid=IwAR3wuSE19TdW_wRNNQcjTUCgqEZ7WcCvhihDywxu_ma8Jp6Odqa6oUpSkJo
NEW START DATE October 13th - Church Parking Lot will be closed -
Thank you for understanding

Dear Parishioners,
On Monday, October 13, 2020, here at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, we will start the construction project to replace our main church roof.
This construction will allow us to finally be able to replace our main church roof which has been made possible through your generous donations to the One Heart One Soul Campaign.

This will require us for safety to have the back parking lot closed for the duration of the project 4-6 weeks depending on the weather.
As well the roofing company will place a construction fence between the school and the church for the safety of the students during recesses.
Please note that the parking lot will be closed, from Monday - Friday for daily Masses.  We ask you for your patience and cooperation in parking on Roslin Ave or Lourdes Street.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause anyone, but safety is the most important.
With prayers,
Our Lady of Lourdes Parish
IN HOPE OF THE RESURRECTION:  In our Catholic tradition, November is set aside as a month dedicated to the Souls in Purgatory.  It is a time for us to reflect on our lives as a pilgrim journey to the Lord, as well as an opportunity to prayerfully remember our loved ones and friends who have gone before us.  As a parish, we will highlight this month of grace by preparing a book entitled “In Hope of the Resurrection” into which will be placed the names of our departed family members and friends.  This memorial book will be enshrined before the altar throughout the month of November and the recorded names will be remembered daily during the Mass.  A special sheet on which to record the names of those you wish to remember will be available at the back of the church this weekend.  Please complete the forms and return to the church next weekend. A special box for the page will be at each entrance to the church.

or Click the link below and print the form. The completed forms can be emailed to the parish office lourdeswaterloo@rogers.com

A Birthday Prayer 
May the peace of God be with you on this, your special day.
May his gifts of grace surround you as you follow in his way.
May his blessing rest upon you and his wisdom guide you,
now and always, in all places.
May his love and care for you. 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY 
to everyone celebrating a birthday in October.
