"Where there is no vision, the people perish." Proverbs 28:19
Our Lady of Lourdes parish is a community of faith dedicated to living the spirit of Jesus Christ through the practice of our Roman Catholic tradition. Our mission is to communicate the message of Christ’s redeeming love to those lives we touch in the parish and throughout the community. With the use of our time, talent and treasure we support our church, parochial school, christian formation programs, social ministry and spiritual growth. We ask for the continued blessings and intercession of our patroness, Mary, Our Lady of Lourdes.
2014 Parish Picnic
After the successful 9th Annual Filipino Festival held at Our Lady of Lourdes Church in August, many of the parishioners and volunteers are pictured here taking time to relax at their Annual Church Picnic in September. The attendance at this year’s Festival was nearly 20,000 this year, breaking past records, and some food needed to be replenished. Mark your calendar for next year’s 10th Annual Filipino Festival to be held August 7 & 8. Festival volunteers enjoyed participating in Sacred Heart Cathedral’s International Food Festival earlier in October and won the decorating contest. OLL members have embraced the Diocese of Richmond's five-year pastoral plan for evangelization and have formed committees. Other parishioners are taking classes based on Pope Francis’ book, “The Joy of the Gospel,” and gearing up for the church’s 70th Anniversary, the Bishop’s Diocesan Appeal, Hispanic Heritage Month, and other activities.
