This Christian Moms' Group is for ALL moms who desire encouragement and support in the vocation of motherhood. The group meets at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Hall in Genoa. The address is 204 Main St. in Genoa, Ohio. During the meetings, moms will hear inspiring speakers, tap into their own creativity, grow spiritually, and discuss many aspects of Motherhood.
Our group's mission is to support, encourage, and guide mothers and their families through opportunities for spiritual growth, practical insight, creativity, fellowship, and service to the community.
The Grotto Committee’s mission is to make known and spread devotion to Our Lady of Lourdes, as well as other devotions, and to maintain and use the Grotto Grounds and Gift Shop. Our main goal is spreading devotion to the parish’s namesake Our Lady of Lourdes, focusing on the main themes of Lourdes: the Immaculate Conception, the Rosary, and the miraculous Lourdes water. Among other devotions planned are outdoor services including the Divine Mercy Chaplet, Stations of the Cross, Masses, Benedictions, and Rosary processions. All parishioners are welcome to join, and we have the 33 Club if you care to financially support Our Lady’s Grotto.

Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church has been an active member of the Genoa Area Community Food Pantry since 1988. Seven area churches in Genoa make up the board that helps run the food pantry with monthly food distribution. On average, the food pantry assists close to 40 families each month, which feeds up to 100 people.
Ellen Bergman and Joanne Luebke are the current food pantry board members representing Our Lady of Lourdes. We hope to put together a team of 20 parishioners to assist on two Saturdays a year when OLL is responsible for the distribution of food. Youth looking for volunteer hours are welcome.
In 2020, Our Lady of Lourdes will be responsible for running the food pantry on Saturday, May 16 9-noon; and Saturday, October 17 9-noon.
Jobs that you may assist with include: Helping with intake information of clients, assisting clients load the food items into bags, assist the client with taking the items to their vehicle, loading bins with food for distribution, etc.
