It is the mission of Our Lady of Lourdes Family Life to create an atmosphere of kindness, compassion, joy and love through providing fun, family-oriented activities and events such as holiday celebrations, bible fun, craft parties, movie days and more. It is our goal that families that participate in our parish life will feel more a part of our parish family and, in turn, a part of the worldwide family of the Catholic Church. As Our Holy Father, Pope Francis said, “Not only would I say that the family is important for the evangelization of the new world. The family is important, and it is necessary for the survival of humanity. Without the family, the cultural survival of the human race would be at risk. The family, whether we like it or not, is the foundation.” (Saturday, July 27, Interview on Radio Cathedral (radio broadcasting station of the Archdiocese of Rio de Janeiro)).

Let us always meet each other with a smile, for a smile is the beginning of love.
—Mother Teresa
