Message from Msgr. Schwanger


My Dear Family of Our Lady of Lourdes,

We know these days are full of challenges; physical, psychological, and spiritual. The Lord and His mother are caring for us as we journey through this together and we would like to let you know that the parish remains open. We celebrate Mass each and every day and our ministries continue to serve.

In order to get that message out to everyone, we will be sending a “gift package” to the parish family and visiting the neighborhood. Part of the “gift package” is a decal of Our Lady of Lourdes with St. Bernadette. We ask that you place the decal in one of the front windows or doors of the house as a sign to your neighbors that they are not alone, and that the parish family is nearby. The decals in the windows of your neighbors means the same for you!

Also included will be our pamphlet on our ministry to those who are sick and those who are homebound. We have a team of volunteers trained to bring Holy Communion to those who homebound.

If you would like to arrange for a visit, call the office at (305) 386-4121 or email me at .

I would also be happy to help connect you to any of our other services including technical assistance.

Our Lady of Lourdes is an Adoration Parish. Our Perpetual Adoration Chapel is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As parishioners we commit ourselves to visit the Blessed Sacrament for at least one hour each week and to offer that hour for the intentions of our parish family. You are in our prayers and you are invited to join us in prayer and adoration, either at the Adoration Chapel or online through our website.

As a parishioner of Our Lady of Lourdes, you can always rely on our Blessed Mother to be your special companion and guide. In the years ahead we will have many opportunities come together as a community of faith, to experience the Lord’s love and care for us and to share it with each other.

Msgr. Schwanger
