A family called to celebrate, evangelize, and love.

 ​As the parish family of Our Lady of Lourdes Roman Catholic Church, we educate and nourish our members in the roots of our Christian faith. By our deeds and faith, we strive to extend the Word of God to our parish family, our community, and the world around us.

Through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we ask for God's guidance as we attempt to fulfill this mission through discipleship and our witness to Christ.
