St. Boniface & Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Parishes
Welcome to St. Boniface & Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Parishes!
Deeply committed to Jesus Christ, we endeavor to become a unified community of faith, worship, and service. We strive to be warm, welcoming and caring parishes in which the gifts and talents of all, young and old, are recognized and graciously used to nourish others.
Box of Joy -
WOW! The generosity and charity of our community never fails to amaze me! We handed out over 100 boxes to our children and families to fill. We had a goal of doubling our best year of giving, which was 50 boxes in 2017. Through your amazing generosity, we filled and shipped 180 boxes to help children and families have their most amazing Christmas ever! Thanks to everyone that made this happen, particularly Patti Greenhill and the Moms’ Group! Also, special thanks to Tim and Sarah Hartigan, John and Linda Hartigan, and Catalina Construction.
Food Pantry Donations
Please bring non perishable foods to Our Lady of Lourdes Church and/or St. Boniface for the Food Pantry of Genoa and Oak Harbor.
Suggested items for the month of November are Canned Meats and Laundry Detergent.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY!
