Message from Msgr. Schwanger


My Dear Family of Our Lady of Lourdes,

Light a candle at the Grotto! It just got super easy to do.

We are now able to request that a candle be placed at the Grotto with our intention using our mobile devices or our computer. Just go to the Live Grotto tab on our website or app and you will see that right below the view of the Grotto is a tab for requesting the candle and placing your intention.

If you are using Faith Direct for your parish contribution, as I am, you don’t even have to have your credit card with you. All you do is put in your user name and password and make the request through your Faith Direct account page. The request will be forwarded to the Holy Boutique and someone there will take your candle and intention to the Grotto. I just tested it and placed an intention for our June Pilgrims to Lourdes. Very exciting!

Even more exciting is that soon we will be able to request Mass Intentions the same way. For Mass Intentions we will click on the Mass Intentions tab on the website or app and above the list of this week’s intentions will be a button to click for requesting a Mass Intention. The request will then be forwarded to the Office and we will confirm with you the date and time for the Mass. Again, very exciting!

Check it out.

Msgr. Schwanger
