SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR STEADFAST PARISHIONERS
Thank you for your continuing financial support through online e-Giving, and mailing your Envelopes to the Parish Office when you are unable to attend Mass. Our Church has returned to a normal Mass schedule, and we are happy that you can come and be strengthened by the Body of Christ.
May God continue to bless and protect you and your loved ones.
Dear Parish Family,
Please consider e-Giving. e-Giving is an easy, fast and secure way of automatically giving your offertory or other contributions online using your checking account, credit card, or debit card. The convenience of not having to worry about weekly envelopes or writing a check before you rush to attend Sunday Mass is absolutely valuable for many parishioners.
e-Giving guarantees the delivery of your offering on a timely basis, and in a predetermined fashion designed by you. This saves the Parish the continuing escalating cost of printing and mailing envelopes. However, you may still request envelopes if you so desire.
If you decide that this is a convenient and time-saving way of making your offertories, please click HERE to register. If you have any questions or concerns, please call our Accounting Department at 561-483-2440 Ext 1418.
Thank you for supporting your Parish. May God richly bless you.
OLOL’s 45th BIRTHDAY IS ON ITS WAY
Officially established on June 6, 1977, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church has experienced a remarkable growth since the time of its founding by Pastor, Msgr. Joseph O’Shea after whom the Parish Hall has been named. Initially, the parishioners began gathering at Sandalfoot Racket Club where the first Holy Mass took place on June 26, 1977. Extending over 9 acres of land, the four buildings were built between 1979 to 1991, and the Grotto and Prayer Garden weas dedicated last Summer.
As we are about to celebrate 45 years of memories of miracles and Christian sacrifices, we look to the future with renewed enthusiasm and committed efforts to continue inspiring the faith of those coming after us.
To secure such an endeavor, the Parish is launching a Capital Campaign that will allow us to repair and replace the aged pews, to renew the flooring, to repair and restore the doors’ hardware, and to update sound system.
A major challenge is to replace the carpet and pews by the end of the Summer of next year 2022. We rely on the creativity of our parishioners to help us in this project. Be a part of this campaign and most important, assist our efforts with your prayers.
Those who came before us left us with a beautiful building to reach up to God, and to reach in and out to those in need of hearing about God’s love and experiencing it. We would like to restore our Parish and Church making it welcoming and beautiful for those coming after us.

Find out the answers to these questions and much more in this Lectio series on Mary; Lectio Mary: The Bible and the Mother of God.
In this dynamic video program and accompanying Study Guide, Dr. Brant Pitre combines an in-depth biblical study examining the Marian connections between the Old and New Testaments with insightful questions and answers to common misconceptions about Mary, and personal reflections to lead participants into a deeper love for Mary and a clearer understanding of her role in the Christian life

BECOME A CCD CATECHIST
Please consider volunteering in our Religious Ed program during the next school year. We are always in need of teachers, assistants, office help, and traffic monitors. Teen Helpers are also needed. Help bring our children closer to Jesus. We will train you.
Serving at the Altar and assisting the Priest at Mass is an awesome privilege that allows children who have made their first communion to grow closer to God and serve the Church. Altar Servers get a “behind the scenes” look at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that few others will ever have. It is a great honor and a commitment on the part of the server and their families.
Anyone who is interested in serving should contact the Parish Office at 561-483-2440 to sign up for .
Volunteering is a rewarding way to serve your community. It challenges your spirit, fills your heart and enriches your life. Yours may be a renewed sense of purpose or possibly work to fill idle moments. Maybe it’s the opportunity to touch someone on a heartfelt level and be touched in return. If you would like to serve, please contact the Parish Office at 561-483-2440.
