Mission Statement

We are a Catholic Community whom God has called together through Baptism.

As part of Christ's Living Church, we welcome all to:

  • Worship with us through our Liturgical Celebrations;
  • Learn with us the teachings of Jesus as we expand our discipleship;
  • Serve with us God's people inside and outside Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in a spirit of stewardship; and
  • Gather with us to celebrate Christ's two great commandments of love.
