Welcome to Our Lady of Lourdes Religious Education

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.

This year, because of COVID-19, we will be doing Christmas a little differently. We want to make sure that everyone is safe so we are asking for donations of gift cards that will be given to the families we are assisting. The families will be able to use them for gifts for Christmas. Since they will need them earlier in order to have time to use them before Christmas, we are asking that any donations of gift cards be brought in by December 10th.
We are requesting gift cards from Target, Walmart, Amazon, Kohl’s, Macy’s and Old Navy.
Thank you for all the support that you have given to Outreach during this year that has been difficult for many.

There are some GUIDELINES that we need to follow.
Seating capacity is limited to 25% of the building’s seating capacity. We will be opening the All-Purpose Room as well. Pews will be “roped off.” We ask that people sit at the end of the row only. Families may sit together! By sitting at the end of the aisle, we can easily maintain the 6-ft. “social distancing.”
Every person over the age of two (2) MUST wear a mask (unless the individual has breathing issues). Any homemade mask is fine, just as long as the mask or scarf covers the nose and mouth. There is no need to wear gloves. The Center for Disease Control recommends gloves only when cleaning and when caring for the sick.
There will no hymnals or missalettes for the near future.
There will be NO holy water in the fonts BUT you can obtain holy water from the Holy Water dispenser/tank in the main vestibule.
There will be NO Sign of Peace.
There will be NO Offertory Procession with the gifts.
