Please Pray for our Second Graders!

On Saturday afternoon, our second graders will begin their preparation process for First Reconciliation. We have a special family retreat day planned for them with a guest presentation by Ray Boswell also knows as the Potter. At the conclusion of the retreat day, we will attend Mass together. During the Mass, the children will experience a special Rite of Enrollment ceremony to begin their journey of sacrament preparation. Please keep these childen and their families in your prayers.

Happy New Year!

Welcome to the new year of the Church! The first Sunday of Advent marks the beginning of the new liturgical year.

No Classes This Week due to Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to our families!

Thank You!

Thank you to all you attended our Thanksgiving prayer services. A special thank you to the students in our program who ran our services: Rose Michetti, Elizabeth Molfetto, and Elaina Michetti, and to our Confirmation students and parents who helped make the services run smoothly. An extra special thank you goes out to Mr. Mike our custodian who hand-painted our gratitude tree. It looked terrific!

Hope you were able to help your child find his/her leaf on our gratitude tree at church this weekend. If you haven't seen it, stop by church or check out a picture of it on our facebook page Our Lady of Lourdes Mountainside Faith Formation. A special thank you to Mr. Mike for making the tree for us. Come out to our Thanksgiving Prayer service and tree blessing Tuesday or Wednesday at 4PM.
