The Our Lady of Lourdes Memorial Garden
The Our Lady of Lourdes Memorial Garden is a special place for teachers, students, and guests to remember those family and friends we have lost. The garden space was designed and landscaped by Mr. Bob Peters. On November 9th, Fr. Len will be blessing the garden three separate times with the junior high, faculty, and staff. The 8th grade students will participate at 12:15, the 7th grade students at 12:45, and the 6th grade students at 1:25. Please join us for the Dedication Ceremony, All are Welcome.
Third “Be My Witness” Parish Survey Available Oct. 21 through Nov. 9
The OLL Parish Leadership Team for “Be My Witness” appreciates everyone who took time to respond to the first two “Be My Witness” surveys on the Sunday Mass experience and parish hospitality & welcome. A summary of the “Welcome Matters: Points of Hospitality” survey results appears in the October 27 & 28 bulletin which you can find at lourdes.org. The third survey, entitled “Belonging Matters: Building Parish Engagement,” asks you to assess our parish on how well it fosters a sense of belonging in a variety of areas. Please take the survey online at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YGWVL9R. More than one member of each household may participate. Paper copies of the survey are available in the church’s Gathering Space. Completed paper surveys should be returned to the Parish Office or placed in the survey basket or collection basket by November 9. All responses are confidential. Since we are trying to obtain input from all age levels, please spread the word and encourage your fellow parishioners to access the survey.
News from the OLLAC:
Our 5/6th grade football team fought a hard battle on Saturday. The 3/4th grade boys' soccer team fought just as hard on Sunday afternoon. Both teams gave their all and their best. Job well done representing Lourdes!
