Faith & Family Nights

On November 9, St. Mary of Lourdes will be kicking off their first Faith & Family Night, a time for families of the parish to gather together to explore a faith topic and ways to celebrate it at home. Immediately following the 4:30pm Mass, families will enjoy a simple dinner before moving into the presentation and activities for the evening.

Our first gathering focusses on Advent. Families will have a chance to explore the meaning of the Advent wreath and to create one for their home. A second station will be exploring and creating a Jesse Tree to help them journey through scripture during the Advent season. The third and final station has families looking to the days following Christmas and how they can celebrate the Twelve Days of Christmas.

To register for the November 9 Faith and Family Night, email this form to Ileen at igrebner@stmarylourdes.org or placing it in the collection basket marked “Faith and Family Night”.

There is a $15 per family registration fee that covers dinner for the entire family and all supplies for the various stations. This can be paid by dropping an envelope into the collection basket marked “Faith and Family Night” along with the registration form if it has not already been emailed to Ileen.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, February 1 for our next Faith and Family Night.

Bishop Jenky’s 2020 Festival Letter

This weekend, September 21 & 22, Fr. Greg referenced Bishop Jenky’s 2020 Festival Letter, The Real Presence, in his homily. He asked for all parishioners to read and reflect on it. He also challenged all of us to memorize and pray the Anima Christi each time we return to the pews after receiving the Body and Blood of Christ to give thanks for the great gift that we have received in the Eucharist.

You will be able to find Bishop Jenky’s 2020 Festival Letter by following the link below and clicking on “2020”. Festival Letters from previous years can also be found at this link.
