What our parents say about us

 

  • “It’s not just a school, it’s a community of teachers, faculty, parents and priests; and because of this community, we think our children are much better prepared to face their next steps in life. Our decision nine years ago was a good one.” - Parent of students in grades 8, 7 and 4.

  • “Our Lady of Lourdes not only focuses on education but the staff also stresses a great moral environment which I believe has had a great influence on my children.  As my children have developed into teenagers, I believe Our Lady of Lourdes’ teaching has truly helped them make good education and good moral decisions during these tough teenage years.” - Parent of students in grade 8.

Pop-Up Catechesis: Celebrating the Feast of St. John Paul II

                                                                                                

While many of us folks of a certain age think of Pope St. John Paul II as a contemporary, many of our young people probably would consider him as “ancient history.” After all, he passed away in 2005, which means that none of our pre-K through grade 8 children have a living memory of him. Likewise, those college-age young adults who may have vague memories of him from their childhood probably only recall him as old and frail. So how can we convey the energy and vigor of this Pope, whose pontificate lasted almost 27 years (the third longest pontificate in Church history)? I think that a good introduction to the excitement that Pope John Paul II stirred among young people is captured in his visit to World Youth Day in Los Angeles in 1987. There, a young man named Tony Melendez, who was born with no arms, appeared on stage to play guitar (with his feet) and sing for His Holiness. In this episode of Pop-Up Catechesis, we revisit this incredible moment when Pope John Paul II embraced not only Tony Melendez, but an entire generation of young people!

By the way, I had the honor and privilege of accompanying Tony Melendez for a song when he performed at the high school where I taught in 1989! Likewise, he was one of the last people I saw on the road before the pandemic shut down my travels in early 2020.
