Time to Remember our Beloved Faithful Departed. . .

Our Immaculate Queen, though free from the stain of every sin, nevertheless experienced death for a number of reasons: she wanted to imitate her Divine Son in every possible way; in addition, she died in order to merit for us poor sinners, a holy death such as she died, even the possibility of a peaceful, dormition-like-death. No wonder, then, she came down from Heaven to give us the Brown Scapular. With this Scapular, which gives us a share in Our Lady’s garment, she can make our passing from this world more peaceful, holy, and happy. Let us be sure to wear her Brown Scapular faithfully, which promises us a share in her happy death and gives our loved ones some assurance of our place in the life to come. Even with that assurance, however, we also know we can still offer our beloved dead some acts of love and kindness by hastening their release from Purgatory through our prayers and assistance. Let us also not take lightly those words with which we were clothed with this holy garment: “Receive this blessed Scapular and ask the most holy Virgin that, by her merits, it may be worn with no stain of sin and may protect you from all harm and bring you into everlasting life.” Our Lady always fulfills her promises if we only keep ours.

It is time we built a Niche for Our Lady. . .


Thanks to your continued support, we are  planning to build a beautiful Grotto to complement our parish and provide a place for our congregation to pray and light candles... but most especially to give honor to the highest honor of our race. For how can we have a church dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes without a Grotto? We now have the plans according to which we hope to hollow out a place in the rock worthy of Our Lady of Lourdes. Yet, the planned Grotto is modest, with modest statuary to match our modest church. It will be a place of repose and meditation with a water feature set in beautifully landscaped hillside.

Prayer in Time of Affliction


Blessed, O Lord, be Thy Name forever, Who has permitted this affliction to come upon us. We cannot escape it, but must of necessity fly to Thee to help us and turn it to our good.

Lord, we are now in affliction. Our souls are ill at ease, for we are much troubled with this present suffering. Let it please Thee, O Lord, to deliver us, for, poor wretches that we are, what can we do without Thee? Thy mighty Hand can do all things.

Give us patience, O Lord, and strength and peace. Help us, O God, and we will not fear, no matter how grievously we may be afflicted. O Lord, “Thy Will be done!” Welcome be the Will of God! Sacred Heart of Jesus, we place our trust in Thee
