Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness and our hope, to thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve; to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in the vale of tears; turn, then, most gracious Advocate, thy eyes of mercy toward us, and after this, our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O loving, I sweet Virgin Mary!
Pray for us, O holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ. Amen.

The spring Baby Bottle Campaign serves as the foundation from which Marillac Place relies on to operate. Our church, as well as others in our community, have carried the torch through collecting donations bypassing baby bottles among its congregations each year between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.

This year, because of the pandemic, we are being challenged to re-visit the way we do things. Due to an urgent need for support, the Baby Bottle Campaign set to launch on Mother's Day will be a virtual campaign.

Any amount of support you can provide will make a difference in the lives of the vulnerable young mothers and families we serve.

No one should face motherhood alone. Make a difference today and donate now.

Donate on-line at www.marillacplace.ca/donate/

Or send cheques directly to 109 Young Street, Kitchener, ON, N2H 4Z2

We Depend on Your Generosity

Our Lady of Lourdes Parish depends entirely on the generosity of our parishioners.

We are extremely grateful for your overwhelming support and we would like to take this opportunity to extend our heartfelt gratitude for your support to our parish and those who are in need.  

With the suspension of Sunday Mass, we urge our faithful parishioners, to continue to support Our Lady of Lourdes Parish.  At this time of significant insecurity for many people,  if you are able to continue your contribution to Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, it would allow us to pay salaries and keep the buildings heated and maintained. There are four methods to make your offering:
  • Pre – Authorized Giving: through scheduled monthly or weekly transfers. Forms are available by sending an email or by calling our parish office and we will send the forms to you. Fill out the form, attach a void cheque and place the form in a sealed envelope and put it in the parish office mailbox or scan both and email to lourdeswaterloo@rogers.com
  • Drop off your weekly envelope by putting it in the mailbox in the Parish Office door off of the Parking Lot.
  • Post-dated cheques.  Instead of coming every week, put several post-dated cheques into the same envelope.
  • Electronic Giving: https://hamiltondiocese.com/covid19parishfund/
    and click support my parish now and make your donation automatically using your credit on this secure page.

Pope's May Prayer Intention: For Deacons

 

In his prayer intention for the month of May, Pope Francis calls us to "pray that deacons, faithful in their service to the Word and the poor, may be an invigorating symbol for the entire Church."

"Deacons are not second-level priests.
They are part of the clergy and live their vocation in and with their family.
They are dedicated to the service of the poor, who carry within them the face of the suffering Christ.
They are the guardians of service in the Church.
Let us pray that deacons, faithful in their service to the Word and the poor, maybe an invigorating symbol for the entire Church."

- Pope Francis, May 2020
