“Not fare well, but fare forward, voyagers.”– T.S. Elliot

On Sunday, May 21, our Parish Family came together to say “fare-forward” to our Pastor, Fr. Brian.  The church was filled with parishioners young and old who offered their prayerful best wishes to Fr. Brian as he takes leave of OLL and begins his ministry as pastor of St. Patrick in Smithtown.  Our Parish Family presented Fr. Brian with a beautiful plaque (pictured above) to commemorate his time here at OLL as pastor.  Click here to view a gallery of pictures from the 12:30pm Mass and the wonderful celebration that followed in the School Cafeteria. Thank you to everyone who helped make the day so special for Fr. Brian.

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us!

Care Packages to Kuwait

Dear Parishioners,
As you know, I am deployed in Kuwait.  The following is a list of things the Chaplains like to offer the troops.  The troops especially enjoy the special food items.  I was hoping you could donate these items.  If you can, please bring them to the church doors or Parish Office.  There will be boxes.  Could you please drop off your items by Monday, June 19?   Bigger is not always better.  We need to give these items to individual Service Members, so I cannot use huge, family style items.

Thank you so very, very much!  Fr. Brian

Needed items:  Tooth brushes, Toothpaste, Sunscreen, Skin lotion, Chapstick, Beef/Salmon Jerky, Protein powders, Keurig Coffee pods (a variety), Sunflower seeds, Dried fruit (banana chips, etc.), Pringles chips.

Children’s Liturgy of the Word

We have had a wonderful time sharing God’s Word with the children. Thank you for bringing them each week – they are all very special. Our last Sunday together will be June 25. We will not meet over the summer. Have a safe, healthy and blessed summer. We will begin Children’s Liturgy again on Sunday, September 10.

Time Change:  Weekly Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament – Tuesdays

Please note:  Due to the Oremus Bible Study course taking place on Tuesday evenings, for the next 6 weeks our weekly Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament will end at 7pm.  We will return to our regular end-time of 7:30pm on Tuesday, June 20.  Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
