Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Chapel is home to the Traditional Latin Mass Parish for the Diocese of Covington, Kentucky, erected by his Excellency, Bishop Roger J. Foys, on July 16, 2016.

NOTICE: At this time there will be no public Masses, Confessions, or other Sacramental Rituals offered at Our Lady of Lourdes church in Park Hills for the foreseable future per order of His Excellency Bishop John Iffert. Other arrangements are being made for a future location for the Latin Mass and for a priestly ministry to the flock of this personal parish.

Good Saint Joseph, Come to Our Aid . . .


Many teachers of the holy Faith have declared that most saints are prayed to for some particular need, such as praying to St. Christopher for safe travels. But as for St. Joseph, he has received universal power to come to our aid in all our wants of body and soul. We, along with the great Carmelite mystic, St. Teresa of Jesus, know the power of the greatest of Patriarchs:


I am astonished at the great favors which God has bestowed on me through this blessed saint, and at the perils from which He has freed me, both in body and in soul. To other saints the Lord seems to have given grace to help us in some of our necessities but of this glorious saint my experience is that he helps us in them all and that the Lord wishes to teach us that as He was Himself subject to him on earth (for, being His guardian and being called His father, he could command Him) just so in Heaven He still does all that he asks.

Please note that not all the angels have been paid for in case you would like to help...

they ended up costing about $3,500 each.

they ended up costing about $7000 for each opening, which has two window spears.

These windows can have a memorial name for each.

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

Water Color of our Proposed Grotto . . .


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

The Dean of Lourdes, Abbe Peyramale, to St Bernadette:

“Ask the Lady Her name once more, and when we know Her name,

we will build Her a chapel. And it won’t be a little one, I tell you;

it will be a very big one.”
