Message from the Pastor Msgr. Kenneth Schwanger

Our Lady of Lourdes Church

My Dear Family of Our Lady of Lourdes,

What a shame that the Rector of the Sanctuary of Lourdes couldn`t be here for the Healing Mass and Procession and the Geste de l`Eau. I am writing this column while the Geste de l`Eau is going on and the number of people who have come for the Geste and their testimony after having participated reminds us just how important this ministry that our Lady is sharing with us is for us here in Miami.

I invite everyone to join us again to welcome the Rector when he comes and give him a least of taste of the Spirit working among us here in Miami.

He will be with us for Mass followed by the Candlelight Rosary Procession on March 3rd. Bishop Delgado will celebrate a Mass of welcome for him on Sunday, March 3rd, at 1:30 pm.

Following the Mass, we will have a Candlelight Rosary Procession so that he can experience the Grace of Lourdes as we live it here in Miami.

And speaking of Bishop Delgado, he will be preaching our Lenten Mission "It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me" this week as well. He will preach the mission in English on Monday evening in the main church at 8:00 pm and then again in Spanish on Wednesday evening in the main church at 8:00 pm. These have been wonderful and spirt-packed weeks, and the blessings continue to come!

Our Lady of Lourdes, pray for us.
St. Bernadette, pray for us.

Msgr. Schwanger
Pastor
