Back To School

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty of what school will be like this year, we will be moving our “Back To School” program to a gift card program for this year. Gift cards will offer greater flexibility and will help to provide for whatever the situation is for the year. We will be requesting gift cards from Target, Walmart, Dollar Tree, Staples and Old Navy, or from any other place that you think would be helpful.

As always, thank you for all the support you give to Outreach throughout the year.

Vestibule Renovation

On Monday, July 27, we began work on the 3 vestibules entering the church.

The work should not interfere with any Masses, however, the votive candles will not be available at this time. We are working on a temporary location for the candles, and will provide updates as soon as that is in place.

Thank you for your understanding while we complete these renovations to update and beautify Our Lady of Lourdes Church.




Our Lady of Lourdes Pre-Cana

Our Parish Pre-Cana Program has been postponed. We will publish the new date as soon as it is re-scheduled. For further information, please leave a message for Deacon Rich Maher at 631-661-3224, press 2.
