Adapting RE for COVID-19

In an effort to keep our community as healthy as possible and flatten the curve of the COVID-19 spread, all in person faith formation opportunities have been suspended…stay tuned for more on RE and E-Church!

As Catholics, we believe that the first teachers of the faith for any child are the family members with whom he or she lives. What happens in the “domestic church” on a daily basis has a profound impact on the lessons of life and faith that a child learns. The goal of the Our Lady of Lourdes Religious Education program and Lourdes Catholic School is to partner with parents to form lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ, and the need to work together is even stronger now while we can’t physically gather as a church community on Wednesday nights for RE class, during the school day at LCS, and on Sunday’s to celebrate Mass! We can still BE church and we’re getting creative to put some resources together to help your domestic church do that!

Beginning Sunday, March 22, we’ll be launching a schedule (check out the eChurch page of the parish website to see all the events!) of live-stream Masses, devotions, classes, and more, using our parish Facebook page –

We’ve prepared a special Holy Week At Home Prayer Kit to go along with all of the live-streamed eChurch events that are happening during these sacred days. Each day includes a reflection, a prayer, and an activity to help you mark the day in your home. Download your copy here…

Watch the videos below to for a quick overview of what we’re remembering and making present during the sacred days of Holy Week and a cartoon version of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday…
