If you have not received a registration form in the mail, please call the rectory office as soon as you can to register your son/ daughter. Our mission is to assist all parishioners of Our Lady of Lourdes in formation and promote a life of faith and service to others.

Catechists and confirmed teens are welcomed and needed to help share their faith for our wonderful Faith Formation program starting the month of September 2018—May 2019. Please consider this a wonderful opportunity to encourage students to know and become closer to Jesus Christ!

Our Lady of Lourdes Church offers Faith Formation classes for children in grades Pre - K through Confirmation (grade 9). Children should attend classes every year in order to develop a strong faith foundation. To facilitate those who move into the area, registrations are open year round.

Sacrament of Confirmation

Confirmation is one of the three sacraments of initiation. The Faith Formation Classes which help prepare for this process are offered during grades 8 - 9. The process is our opportunity to help candidates to form strong life-long habits in the life of Christ.

We are delighted to announce the Sacrament of Confirmation is scheduled for Saturday, 1 June 2019 at 10:00 AM at the Cathedral of St. Patrick.  Rehearsal will be scheduled on Friday, 31 May 2019 here at Our Lady of Lourdes at 6:30 PM. Candidates and sponsors are required to attend.
