IMPORTANT MEETING for the members of Our Lady of the Rosary and Our Lady of Lourdes Parishes and Staff.

Fr. Joe would like to meet with all members of the Parish Councils, all who are involved in ministry in any way and with any interested parishioners on Sunday afternoon, February 9th, at 3:00pm.

The meeting will take place in Our Lady of Lourdes Church.

The purpose of the meeting is to begin a discussion as how both Our Lady of the Rosary Parish and Our Lady of Lourdes Parish can work even more collaboratively in the future and to stress the importance of lay ministry as we walk into the future. The meeting will last no more than 60 minutes and will include some time for prayer and reflection.


On February 9, 2020 at 3:00pm in the Church at Lourdes.

Let's support each other in faith, in hope and above all in love.

Every story in the Bible helps us to get to know what God is like, what we are like, and the way God wants us to live every day of our lives. In order for us to know God personally through Jesus, we celebrate His LIFE, DEATH, and RESURRECTION WHEN WE ATTEND MASS!

AS you work this puzzle, think about how important it is to know the meaning of and the reasons for all the words you find. God LOVES us so much that He has given us a way to learn more about Him, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit every time we go to Church! Let's go often!
