What's ReMembering Church?

ReMembering Church is a program of friendship and support for those who have left active practice in the Catholic Church and are considering a return.  See more information and the complete nine week program schedule on the Formation tab above and click ReMembering Church. Feel complete to sign up online or show up at one of the sessions.  The program is on Wednesdays from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. in the St. Mary's Elementary School.  The first session is September 17th and ends on November 19th.  Questions can be directed to the Parish Office, 620.231.2135.  We extend a welcoming hand to inactive Catholics who may be thinking about a return and invite you to join us at any time.

Religious Vocations

Our Lady of Lourdes is blessed to have six men from our parish going to a seminary.  Deacon Josh Evans, Gabriel Greer, Andrew Dellasega, Aaron Gouvion and Austin Kratz are studying to be priests in the Diocese of Wichita.  Mike Leiker is studying for the Diocese of Salina and Anna Wishall is now a novice with the Dominican Sisters of Hawthorne. See the attachment for photographs and where they are studying.    Please continue to remember them in your prayers.

Come Learn about Catholic Faith

YOU ARE INVITED! COME & LEARN ABOUT THE CATHOLIC FAITH—AND HOW TO LIVE IT:Are you or someone you know interested in learning more about the Catholic Church? Perhaps you’ve been thinking of becoming a member of Our Lady of Lourdes, or you are just curious about what Catholics believe and why. Maybe you or someone you know is not baptized, was baptized in another faith tradition, or was baptized Catholic but has not received the sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Eucharist—and wants to receive fully the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). Please join us on Wednesday, September 17, 6:30-7:45pm, in the St. Mary's Elementary School, 301 East 9th, for our first RCIA session of the year. All adults are welcome!  If you’d like more information, call the parish office, e-mail Peggy Fleming at This email address is being protected from spambots.
