Goal

Our Lady of Lourdes Religious Education process strives to develop and cultivate the faith in every area of life of the child, young adult and adult of the parish.  Faith is a life-long process and is not accomplished quickly, nor is it complete after a certain number of years.  A knowledge of one’s religion and living out of one’s faith is ongoing, and growth and change are an integral part of the process....

Objectives

The purpose of our Religious Education Program at Our Lady of Lourdes parish is to enrich and challenge the lives of our young people with the Gospel message by word and example in a loving and caring Christian community.... More 

Weekly classes are offered for students in Kindergarten through 9th grade beginning mid-September and continuing for 26 weeks. These sessions are available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and are held in the Christian Formation Center.  A child must be pre-registered with a copy of his/her Baptismal Certificate. Registration for classes is held primarily during the month of August. Additional information may be obtained by contacting the Religious Education Office at 561-483-2440 X 1429.

Enjoy Advent! 
by James Martin, SJ

Only a saint could maintain the patience needed to confront Christmas shopping, Christmas stress, and Christmas credit card bills. That's too bad because something else gets overlooked in the rush—and that's Advent. So here are a few brief ways to enjoy yourself over the next few weeks.

First of all, get to know Advent. This liturgical season is a time of waiting—something that we all do: we're waiting for some good news, for a better job, or for our lives to improve. Advent is a time when we think about waiting for God, so it fits in perfectly with our natural human longings. “Come, thou long expected Jesus,” as the hymn goes. Advent is also the time of beautiful Scripture readings, like those from the Book of Isaiah. “The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad, the desert shall rejoice and blossom.” These are readings to give all of us hope! And Advent is the season for beloved church traditions, including the Advent wreath, which can easily be translated into home rituals.

Second, cut back on the craziness of Christmas preparations. Here are just a few suggestions: send cards only to close friends and family; drop one present per person from your list; and go only to the most essential holiday gatherings. Does that sound selfish? It's just the opposite! It will give you time to spend with those you really love, and more time to spend in prayer.

Maybe Advent is when you can really settle into your spiritual life, by finding joy in the season and less stress in Christmas. In short, Advent may be the time that you've been waiting for!

Mary, Mother of God  

I was visiting an inner-city Church one day and in the vestibule some graffiti was written on the wall which said, "Catholics, God has no mother," obviously referring to Mary's title as "Mother of God." How does one respond to such an objection? -- A reader in Springfield.

As Catholics, we firmly believe in the incarnation of our Lord: Mary conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit (Lk 1:26-38 and Mt 1:18-25). Through her, Jesus Christ--second person of the Holy Trinity, one-in-being (consubstantial) with the Father, and true God from true God--entered this world, taking on human flesh and a human soul. Jesus is true God and true man. In His person are united both a divine nature and a human nature.

Mary did not create the divine person of Jesus, who existed with the Father from all eternity. "In fact, the One whom she conceived as man by the Holy Spirit, who truly became her Son according to the flesh, was none other than the Father's eternal Son, the second person of the Holy Trinity. Hence the Church confesses that Mary is truly 'Mother of God' (Theotokos)" (CCC, No. 495). As St. John wrote, "The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us, and we have seen His glory: The glory of an only Son coming from the Father filled with enduring love" (Jn 1:14). More....
