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.
