Welcome . . to Our Lady of Lourdes † St. Anne . . .
Nancy De Ryke
Last week, Nancy De Rycke announced her intention to retire as Pastoral Associate later this Spring. I am deeply grateful for her ministry among us during the past six years. She is talented, experienced, enthusiastic and very hard working.
Her idea of a day off is to work from home. Her warm hospitality and joyous smile have become part of the face of Our Lady of Lourdes+St. Anne. She radiates the joy of being a follower of Jesus Christ.
At the same time many people have experienced her compassion and faith as she ministered to them as they faced the death of a loved one. Continued
Grace and Peace

Getting to Know Our Neighbors
Would you like a chance to meet other organizations serving the needs of people within our parish boundaries? Come to the Lenten Soup Suppers to break bread, share a simple soup and meet leaders from other faith communities and service organizations nearby as they talk about their mission in the community and the current challenges they face. We will meet each Wed. of Lent, 5:30 - 7:00 pm at the St Anne Social Hall. A great time of fellowship and prayer together.

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."
