Welcome to Our Lady of Lourdes Religious Education
As stewards of all that God has given us, the Parish Family of Our Lady of Lourdes serves and ministers to all who come to this place. Regardless of a person’s history, ethnicity, gender, orientation, age or race, we commit ourselves to open wide the doors of our Parish to provide a place of welcome and hospitality.
The Religious Education Calendar and Website are now updated and available !
As members of the Body of Christ, we are called to protect the dignity of everyone. We all need to make sure that our children are in safe environments at home, at school, at church. As a Church, and more specifically as a Diocese and as a parish, we have the Virtus Program.
EVERY employee and EVERY volunteer is required to take a special class (called VIRTUS) that trains adults to see the signs of behaviors in adults that may be a sign of a sexual predator. While this training is mandatory for all employees and volunteers, it is good training for all parents also.
If you have already taken the VIRTUS course, you need not repeat it.
You MUST pre register online, that is the only way to be “signed up” for the course
You MUST register by going online to DRVC.org/ click VIRTUS link to register
