From the Desk of Deacon Richard…

Dear Parish Family:

November is coming, and with it Christmas tree sales will return to Our Lady of Lourdes! In past years, this has been a great way for the parish to raise money while also providing something many people want and need as a part of their family’s Christmas celebration: a freshly-cut tree.

OLL’s Christmas Tree Committee, led by Bob Slusher, has been hard at work for months planning and preparing for this month-long event. There are five teams in place to handle tree sales, but more help is always appreciated. If you would like to be a part of this effort, please contact me and I’ll find you a place on one of the teams.

Something new has been added this year: each weekend during the sale, the Christmas Tree Committee will be holding themed events. Some of the ideas the committee is investigating include Christmas sweets sale, Christmas crafts sales and demonstrations, preparing for a Catholic Christmas tips and ideas, Mother’s Day Out, and pictures with Santa. If you have ideas for a possible weekend theme or would like to be involved in one of these, please email me at

Contact me at 816.679-8974 if you would like to volunteer or if you have any questions.

Dcn. Richard
