Archdiocese accelerating Renew My Church discernment process
As a result of the financial implications of the pandemic, the archdiocese is accelerating the Renew My Church process. It is adding more parishes to the wave 4 discernment process and will finish the process a year earlier than planned. “The urgency to look now is because of the financial challenges and the real structural challenges that the pandemic poses. It is also the dual element of even before the pandemic, in some areas, there was a desire to move forward,” said Tim Weiske, director of Strategic Planning and Implementation. Parishes reached out to...

As such, we make our plans with great caution with our highest priority being the health and well-being of the faithful of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish. Here are the answers to many common questions about how the parish is operating during COVID-19: When is Mass? How can I sign up to attend? Is the Mass offered in Spanish? Effec...

From Fr Mike Shanahan | Sunday, August 9, 2020
Parish life is intended to foster the search for God in our lives. This motivation distinguishes parish life from almost all other areas of our lives. This noble mission is more important than ever these days. Today’s First Reading from the First Book of Kings is focused on the search for God. I found myself thinking about the state of the parish a few weeks ago. Our only masses were online. We received the guidance of the Archdiocese to assemble a team of volunteers so that we can have mass. Soon enough we were able to start with one mass,...

Parish Stewardship
Hello Friends and Parishioners of Lourdes, We thank you for your continued contributions to the parish during these past months.

When will we re-open the Grotto?
We have gotten very many questions about the Perpetual Adoration Grotto and we understand how dearly our many devoted Adorers miss its Eucharistic presence. Of course, the problem that first caused the closure of the Grotto, the COVID 19 pandemic, is still around and as dangerous as ever. Even with the recent re-opening of churches throughout our city and state, the small space inside the Grotto and the narrow hallway leading to it make it very difficult to practice the necessary social distancing. However, new problems have aris...

Fr. Dominic will be out of town in Viet Nam during his anniversary month, so plans for a celebration have not yet been finalized. In the meantime, we wanted to mark this moment by repeating his comments published in the bulletin when he came to Our Lady of Lourdes 2 years ago. "In 1975, when I entered the seminary, we had to study theology and philosophy “under the table” due to the restriction of the communist government which didn’t want to have any more priests. In 1988, I went to the United States and was sponsored to the city of Savannah, GA. From there, I went to New York Seminary in 1989 wo...
