Parish Transformation Initiative
Our Lady of Lourdes Parish participated in an effort known as Parish Transformation Initiative in 2014. The leadership of the parish gathered on a weekly basis for four months for prayer, discernment and community.
We named our blessings which we call "Pearls of Great Price". They are:
- Spiritual Healing
- Our patron Saint, the Blessed Mother
- Diversity among parishioners
- Variety of ministries
- Perpetual Adoration Chapel located in the Grotto since 1992
- Soup Kitchen serving hundreds of thousands of guests since 1985
- Vibrant Religious Education program in English and Spanish
- Ministry to immigrants in the Pastoral Migratoria
We also named our Building Blocks for the future: Evangelization; Communion; Spiritual Stewardship. The link below takes you to additional information about these building blocks.
We developed a Five Year Plan from this Parish Transformation Initiative. This plan began in July 2014 and is currently being executed. We continue to pray as a faith community.
The poster below is the outcome of this initiative.
