Attending Mass at Lourdes made it easier than ever with hand sanitizing at the main entrance, with a capacity of 30% of our main church, and our parish hall.  The social distance of 6 feet between parishioners and with wearing a mask we are all protected.

Our church is sanitized after each Mass, so if you would like to volunteer please meet at the work sacristy which is located behind Mary's altar.

Saturday 7:00 p.m. and Sunday at 9:00 a.m. Mass is broadcast live into our parish hall.

Sunday 11:00 a.m. Mass is broadcast and streamed live to Facebook.
( please note no parishioners are seen in our broadcast and live-streamed Masses. )
October 5th - Church Parking Lot will be Closed -
Thank you for Understanding

Dear Parishioners,
On Monday, October 5, 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 3-4 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, during 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
We mourn those who have gone before us in death
and continue with us in the Communion of Saints.
 + John Harder
 + Paul Schaus
   
Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.
 
 
   
    
 
 
Living Rosary
 
Our Lady of Lourdes Small Faith Group invites you to join its members in praying the living rosary for the needs of the parish and the community.  For the month of October, we are praying for
  • our scientific and medical community. May God, the Lord of Wisdom, give them knowledge and wisdom so that they may have a better understanding of the disease mechanism and may develop medical breakthroughs to counter the effects of the Coronavirus in our lives.
 In addition, we will keep in our prayers
  • the Pope’s monthly intention-The Laity’s Mission in the Church,
  • the sick and their caregivers, and
  • the living and deceased members of our parish.
 
By volunteering, you will be responsible to say one decade of the mystery of the Rosary every day for the coming month.  If you are interested, please sign-up here.

You’re invited!  Since May this year, members of the small faith group have been meeting online. The group is currently meeting twice a month, on the second and fourth Wednesdays from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM.  We are eager to have a few more parishioners joining us to pray and reflect on the Gospel together.
