Lourdes’ Notification: Parish Visioning Questionnaire – Upcoming Town-Hall

Dear parishioners of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, Saskatoon – prayers and blessings to you as we begin our Lenten Journey together…

1) *Attached is a questionnaire to assist in parish visioning and planning for the coming year(s). Please pray and reflect on some of the questions as a household. Please send back to the parish office when you are able. If there are particular questions for myself or pastoral-finance councils that you’d like addressed at the town-hall meeting, please submit those in advance or you can post them in the ‘chat box’ of the Zoom meeting and we’ll do our best to answer these.

2) *A reminder – next week at 6.30pm we will have a Town-Hall for all parishioners interested in attending to connect with and update everyone as we begin this season of Lent. Fr. Geoffrey Young is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting. (please e-mail/text for Zoom link and passcode (not posted for security reasons. 639-471-3246 | gyoung@rcdos.ca).

3) *Liturgy sign-ups for the weekend liturgies are up through to March 19, 2021 (when we hope the government will rescind some of their strict measures on gathering numbers prior to Holy Week. The Bishop and myself too encourage you to contact your MLAs & MPs to respectfully and charitably articulate your desire that places of worship’s gathering sizes would be reasonably based according to occupancy of church size – as is the case for commercial and similar operating businesses).
