Another year has come and gone but it has been a very exciting year. We have a new pope
who on his first International visit to World Youth Day was greeted by more than 3 million
Catholics, and this year the Florida Catholic will be celebrating 75 years of service. When the
Florida Catholic newspaper was created by Bishop Patrick Barry in 1939, he asked us all to
work together to make this paper a voice for the good news.

Once again, we will have the opportunity to extend our love and caring by donating Christmas gifts that will make a difference in the quality of life for many families. We will be assisting the South Brevard Sharing Center for the Christmas Holidays. The South Brevard Sharing Center will be assisting over 300 families. Each family will receive a complete dinner and children between the ages of 1-15 years will receive a new toy or gift (about 500 children!). Please bring your UNWRAPPED DONATION from the lists below to Mass the weekend of December 14 & 15. You will be invited to bring your gift up to the altar during the offertory. If you are not able to attend mass that weekend, you may bring your gift to the Parish Office the week before or take it to the Sharing Center located on Hibiscus Boulevard. It is important that the gift be unwrapped so that when people are putting the items together for a family, they can see what they are selecting.

Prime Time Tuesday
How often have you considered learning more about your Catholic faith only to be distracted? Beginning Tuesday evening, 7 January 2014, Our Lady of Lourdes Parish presents “Prime Time Tuesday” an opportunity for adults of all ages to learn about the Catholic Church, Catholicism, theology, scripture, and other topics pertinent to our Church and our world. Prime Time Tuesday is held every Tuesday evening when sacramental preparation is not scheduled. Come join us in the church at 7:00 – 8:30 PM for the wonderfully enlightening DVD series “Catholicism” authored and hosted by Fr Robert Barron. This series takes us through the story of Jesus and His Church presenting theology, Christology, scripture, and Church history. Catholicism is a must see. Join Deacon Rick for this evening. Who knows – you might learn something!
Nothing would make us happier than to have you visit our church!

There is an Our Lady of Lourdes Petition Book available at all Masses, located in the Foyer of the Church. We invite you to place your prayer petitions in this book.
We encourage you to remember Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in your Last Will and Testament. It is a wonderful way to help insure that the many good works of your Catholic Faith Community keep becoming realities. If legal costs are standing in the way of making such a gift, we may be able to help. Please contact the Parish Office to discuss the possibility of leaving such a gift in your name.
