As many of you know, Our Lady of Lourdes is celebrating the 100th Anniversary of our parish with events and celebrations planned for the next year. Culmination of the celebration will take place in June, 2023. OLL began serving Catholics in this area in 1923. We hope to celebrate these last 100 years with many activities and events to honor those who came before us. Everyone is most welcome to join one or several committees. We especially extend this to the youth of the parish! This is a project that will require many hands. Please look over the information below. Decide where you would like to volunteer your time and talents, and contact the chairperson. Looking forward to a great number of interested people! Visit the 100th Anniversary page on our website for further details.
