The Apostleship of Prayer

Fr Philip Shano, SJ

We are most fortunate to have the opportunity to welcome the Apostleship of Prayer to our parish. As of September 1st, this Jesuit apostolate, directed by Fr Philip Shano SJ, will have its office in the oratory upstairs.


22nd Sunday (Note & Bulletin)

The call of the Christian, with regard to love, is unequivocal – we are called to love no matter the what. The sentence seems simple and easily agreeable, yet we know from our own lives that it is not so simple, nor so easy. There are things we have experienced that all left scars on our hearts. And the scars have made it difficult for love to penetrate.


21st Sunday (Note & Bulletin)

In all the baptized, from first to last, the sanctifying power of the Spirit is at work, impelling us to evangelization. The people of God is holy thanks to this anointing, which makes it infallible in credendo. This means that it does not err in faith, even though it may not find words to explain that faith. The Spirit guides it in truth and leads it to salvation.


Pre-Authorized Giving Plan

Pre-Authorized Giving allows those who wish, to have their monthly donations debited directly from their bank accounts. Our Lady Of Lourdes has this program in place and we offer our parishioners this option for their method of giving.


Note from Fr John

As many of you have already heard, I took a bit of spill last week up at Camp Ekon, breaking my ankle and tibia in the process. I am doing very well and the doctors will be replacing my current cast with a fiberglass cast early this coming week.


20th Sunday of Ordinary Time (Note & Bulletin)

I remember the last hockey team I played for – the Ottawa Valley Titans. I was so happy to have the team. The thing that made me happiest was that I got to wear the team jacket. We were given a maroon leather jacket with the team name proudly displayed across the front. What could look better (it was the 80's, after all)?
