Prayer for the Assumption of Mary

Father in heaven,
all creation rightly gives you praise,
for all life and all holiness come from you.
In the plan of your wisdom
she who bore the Christ in her womb
was raised body and soul in glory to be with him in heaven.
May we follow her example in reflecting your holiness
and join in her hymn of endless love and praise.

We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Amen.
THE ORDINATION OF FOUR PRIESTS for the service in the Diocese of Hamilton was postponed from May 2, 2020, due to the pandemic shutdown, to Saturday, August 15th.  Deacon Paul Edmondstone, Deacon Pawel Stankiewicz, Deacon Hayden Starczala, and Deacon Francisco Sordo, will be ordained Priests during a Mass at the Cathedral Basilica, beginning at 11 a.m. Because of the current restrictions relative to numbers of people allowed to gather for church services, and the requirement of physical distancing, only a limited number of Priests and parishioners will be able to participate. The Deacons are determining immediate family numbers and will propose the names of Priests who they want to assure are present. Dangerous times require extraordinary means! We pray for the four men who are presenting themselves for priestly service! 


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,
too and always, in all places.
May his love and care for you. 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY 
to everyone celebrating a Birthday in August.
 


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.
