Pastor's Note


LOURDES AND THE WORLD OF SECOND EMPIRE FRANCE
(Conference I: March 8th, 2019)

When we look at the ways of God in showing us our Savior and accomplishing the Redemption of the world, we are struck by the way in which God situated things in such a particular time and place. The Universal Savior of Mankind – “Jesus Savior” was known during His visible life on earth as “Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph the carpenter”. And the number of people who knew of Him at all during those brief three-years of His Public Life, were localized in the Roman-ruled administrative areas of western Syria, an utterly insignificant number relative to the population of the world at that time.

Parish Mission Statement

"What then is a parish? It is the smallest section of the one universal flock which has been entrusted to Peter by the Lord. Under the authority of a responsible priest who has received the care of souls from his bishop, the parish is, within the Church of Jesus Christ, the first community of Christian life; it is a community cut to human dimensions, in which the shepherd can know his flock and the flock can know their shepherd. At the heart of this area, we find the parish church with its bell-tower, its baptistery, its confessional, its altar and tabernacle, a symbol of unity and the centre of community life." - Blessed Pope Paul VI, reigned 1964-1978
