Additional Daily Mass During Lent

An additional daily Mass will be celebrated at 12:10pm on weekdays (Monday–Friday) during Lent.  Coming together for Mass in the middle of the day is a wonderful way to connect with Jesus and enrich your prayer life during Lent. We hope to see you, bring a friend!


Stations of the Cross

Join us on Fridays at 12:45pm and at 7:30pm when we will pray the Stations of the Cross in the Church. The Stations of the Cross, also known as the Way of the Cross, detail fourteen different moments on the day Jesus died. This prayer pilgrimage is a powerful way to grow closer to Jesus at any time of the year, though it is most popular during the Lenten season.

R.C.I.A. – The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

On Sunday, February 18, Dennis Martinez participated in the Diocese of Rockville Centre’s Rite of Election at St. Anne’s in Brentwood with Bishop Luis Miguel Romero Fernandez as Presider and all parishes in Suffolk County attending. Dennis is now called “The Elect”and no longer called Catechumen.

On Sunday, February 25, we celebrated the Call to Continuing Conversion with Fr. Charles for our baptized candidate Jared Carrino, here at Our Lady of Lourdes at 11am Mass.

These are important steps in the journey of the R.C.I.A. It’s a clear sign to the community that they are coming closer to receiving the Sacraments of Initiation and Full Communion with the Church at our Easter Vigil on Saturday, March 30.  Below are photos of Dennis & his sponsor with Bishop Romero & Jared and his sponsor with Fr. Charles.


Fr. Dennis’ Installation Mass & Reception

Last Sunday, February 11, at the 12:30pm Mass, our Parish Family celebrated the formal installation of Fr. Dennis as the 8th pastor of Our Lady of Lourdes.  It was wonderful to see so many come out to join in the festivities. Fr. Gerard Gordon, pastor of St. Martin of Tours in Amityville, (dean of our area’s deanery) presided over the installation rites and Fr. Dennis then took over as principal celebrant of the Mass.  During the ceremony, Fr. Dennis consecrated our Parish Family to the protection of the Blessed Mother with a beautiful prayer.  What made it even more special was that we also were celebrating the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes!  Following Mass, all were welcomed to a fun parish reception with delicious food and lots of fellowship.
God bless Fr. Dennis and may our Blessed Mother watch over our parish, always!  Thank you to all who helped make this day so special for Fr. Dennis and our Parish Family!  Below are some pictures from the Mass & Reception and click here to view the full gallery.
