As we begin 2019, our Lourdes St. Vincent de Paul team is making a change in its leadership.
Jim Krueger has served as president of the OLL conference for six years, the maximum term permitted by SVdP guidelines. As president, Jim has generously and tirelessly served the parish and our Westwood neighbors with compassion and integrity. Thank you, Jim, for your service. We are pleased that Jim will continue to serve as an OLL Vincentian.
At a recent meeting, Michael Mattingly was unanimously elected as our new president. Michael and his wife Michele volunteer in many capacities at Lourdes and we are delighted that he has graciously agreed to serve in this additional role.
If you are interested in working with SVdP to serve our neighbors in need, please contact Michael at mattinm@miamioh.edu.

PHASE 2 of “BE MY WITNESS” BEGINS MARCH 2 & 3
Last August the parish began a program called “Be My Witness.” The program’s purpose is to help Our Lady of Lourdes parish to become more focused on spreading the good news of Jesus Christ and inviting people to deepen their relationship with Him in the Church. Sponsored by Renew International, the program draws its inspiration from Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhoration entitled The Joy of the Gospel (Evangelium Gaudii, 2013).
“Be My Witness” consists of two phases. Phase 1 equips parish staff, leaders, and the pastoral council to lead mission-focused change. It results in the development of a pastoral plan designed to help the parish become a center for missionary outreach. Parishioners completed a series of five surveys on various aspects of parish life from August through December 2018. The planning process based on data from the survey has recently begun.
Phase 2 engages and forms parishioners as missionary disciples eager to spread the gospel. This is accomplished through participating in small faith-sharing groups to pray together and to explore key insights from The Joy of the Gospel. During the month of February we will invite parishioners to consider joining a small group for Lent. Sign-Up weekend for the small groups occurs on March 2 & 3. For more information you may contact members of the Small Faith-Sharing Group Implementation Team: Jerry Cappel, Barb Mellon, Kristen Zaffiro, Dave Roettker, and Kristina Krimm. Please continue to pray for the success of “Be My Witness.”
