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.
Helping Hands will be helping with a Free Food Box Program every Saturday during October from 9:00-11:00AM in the parking lot. Anyone can drive thru and receive a box of food. This is a great way to help our farmers. Please spread the news and stop by. We don’t want to dispose of any food. If you want to help load cars, deliver to our shut ins, or direct traffic, call office. On 10/3, we gave 384 boxes out, this week (10/10) we are receiving 576 boxes.
USDA is partnering with farmers, ranchers, specialty crop producers, food processors, and distributors to help nonprofit organizations hand out food boxes. The farmers sell food previously destined for restaurants/schools to distributors preventing waste. Distributors then package family-sized boxes with fresh produce, dairy, and protein products, then transport to non-profit organizations across America to give to their area.
ARISE is a parish-centered process of spiritual
renewal and evangelization that
enables us to deepen our faith, develop a closer relationship with Christ,
grow in community and reach out in service
SEASON FIVE BEGINS FALL 2020!
This 2019 limited revision of Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship includes a new Introductory Letter and gives pastoral guidance to help Catholics in the United States exercise their political responsibility well.
The Introductory Letter responds to new social and political developments in the United States, especially with regard to respect for human life and dignity, as well as the ongoing guidance and teachings of Pope Francis. The content of Part I, II, and III of this teaching document remains unchanged from the 2015 statement. This revision also includes a new Prayer for Faithful Citizenship.
This important document on political responsibility, read in its totality, will guide Catholics as they discern how to be faithful citizens. Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship continues to present to the Catholic faithful, and all those of good will, an up-to-date guide to help form consciences as they participate in the civil order and public life. This guide is available through USCCB publications at www.usccb.org
