· Do you see the vision of both the diocesan and universal church?

· Would you like to serve Our Lady of Lourdes Parish?

 If you answered “yes” to most of these questions, we need you. Several Pastoral Council members’ terms are expiring in June. We need people to replace them. Our meetings are held every month from September through May on the third Friday at 2 pm.  Applications are available in the narthex of each church, in both offices or here.

Recycle, Recycle, Recycle!

Our Lady of Lourdes and Prince of Peace have bins on each church campus that accepts cardboard (please break down containers &  boxes), newspapers, phone books, catalogs and magazines.  Please do not put anything else in the bins or leave items outside the containers as the company will not pick them up. We ask that you notify the maintenance staff or front office if you see any issues with the containers.

 We thank all who continue to support recycling.
