Welcome to Our Lady of Lourdes School


We are people of hope led by the Spirit!
"I wait for the Lord; my soul waits, and in his word I hope."
Psalm 130:5

This year, we will continue to work together on our special projects for those in need. During this time of Advent, we wait in joyful anticipation for the coming of the Messiah!  All children, please remember what Bishop Andrzej told us, you are a gift from God.  Be good to your parents. Please continue to pray for love, understanding, and peace in our world and an end to the awful violence which surrounds us.
Mrs. Mary C. Murphy

A Note from our Pastor
It gives me tremendous joy to be with you. I'm happy to say that our school is healthy and growing. Allow me to thank you for the trust you place in all of us here at OLL. This is a sacred duty that we all undertake each year. We seek not only to educate your children's mind, but also their heart and soul.  My prayer is that we continue to have a safe and healthy school year with great intellectual growth as well as growth in holiness. That is our mission and what we are all committed to.
I'm praying for all of you; God bless you, especially during this joyful Advent season!

Fr. Michael Duffy

Our 5th grade chorus sang at the first annual lighting of the Christmas Tree at  LIJ Valley Stream/Northwell Health (formerly Franklin General) this past week. They did a wonderful job and we thank them and their parents and Mrs. Durand for her help. Please check out our Facebook page for live coverage.

All SAints
First Grade All Saints Celebration

The students of Our Lady of Lourdes collected Rosary Beads for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. The beads were packed and shipped with the help of our newly appointed Student Council. We sent a letter promising our continued prayers for all those affected by the disaster. May these beads be a source of comfort at this difficult time.  We continue to collect donations for Puerto Rico. The Student Council completed a Prayers for Las Vegas project.
Pray for peace!

It gives me tremendous joy to welcome you and your children back to school. The summer was quiet with joyful expectation. We
underwent a lot of preparations for the new school year. I’m happy to say that our school is healthy and we are growing. Allow
me to thank you for the trust you place in Mrs. Murphy, the Faculty and myself. This is a sacred duty that we all undertake this
year. We seek to not only educate your children’s mind, but also their heart and their soul.
My prayer is that we have a safe and healthy school year with great intellectual growth as well as growth in holiness. That is our
mission and that is what we are all committed to. If there is any way I can personally be of assistance to you or your families,
please do not hesitate to contact me at the Rectory. I am trying to be as present as possible at our school in the mornings and
afternoons, please don't hesitate to grab me to chat. I’m praying for all of you! God Bless y
