Welcome . . to Our Lady of Lourdes † St. Anne . . .
Our CMA Goal
As I write this Our Lady of Lourdes has met 99% of our Catholic Ministries Appeal goal, while St. Anne has made 79% of our CMA goal. Thank you to everyone who has pledged or donated to the CMA. The money raised in the appeal funds the ministries and services of the Diocese of Rochester, including many services essential to Our Lady of Lourdes+St. Anne. If you have not yet contributed to the CMA, please do so.
If every household that has not yet contributed where to give only a small amount, we would make our goal easily. Let us please finish our CMA campaign by the end of this month.
Grace and Peace

NOTABLE NEWS from Nancy
A lot has already been said about 2018. So I'll add one more - 2018 is going to bring many changes, some good, some challenging to all of us. It'll be a year of change for me too. I’ll be eligible for Medicare and Social Security in late the Spring. So, as I reflect on my 45 years of having the privilege of ministering in church and parishes, it seems unbelievable that the time is coming to transition toward retirement.
The future is usually a mystery, and its unfolding is one where faith in God and a hopeful optimism is called for. So I ask for your prayers and help in the months to come. It certainly continues to be a privilege and gift to work with each person and wonderful believers of all ages!
God Bless - Nancy De Rycke
Prayer Shawl Ministry
We're looking ahead to 2018 with renewed appreciation for the difference we make in the lives of those who need a hug from God. Recently, we received this note: "I am so grateful for the handmade shawl, especially as the weather turns colder. I feel blessed every time I use it. Thank you! May God continue to support you in this work."
Our January meetings will be Sunday, Jan 14, 10-11:30am at St. Anne, and Sunday, Jan 21, 11:451:15 at Our Lady of Lourdes. Come join us! Questions? Contact Jeriann McEvoy: 473-9656, ext. 143 or email@example.com.
