Our school theme for the 2015-2016 school year:
Share God's loving mercy.
Pope Francis has declared a Jubilee Year of Mercy which will run from December 8, 2015 to November 20, 2016. The Holy Father asks us to make this a year of grace so that the Church, "with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor, proclaim liberty to the oppressed, and restore sight to the blind."
It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness!

Mission Statement of Our Lady of Lourdes School
Malverne, New York
The mission of Our Lady of Lourdes School is to provide an
opportunity for each child to grow in the knowledge, friendship, and
love of the Lord, while aspiring to reach his or her full potential
spiritually, academically, and socially. We are dedicated to creating a
strong, charitable, faith community that strives to practice the
examples Jesus has given us through the gospels.
In an effort to keep all of our children safe and
with the steadily increasing number of children with food allergies, we
are asking that no food or baked goods of any kind be sent in for
celebrations. Each class will have an age appropriate way to celebrate
birthdays and holidays. This policy took effect as of November 4, 2013.
If your child's class is a peanut free zone, please make sure that you
do not send in a snack with nuts of any kind. Thank you for your
cooperation in this serious matter.
All students are expected to be in the school yard when we recite the Pledge of Allegiance together at 8:00am every morning.
Full day PK is dismissed at 2:30pm. Kindergarten is dismissed at 2:40pm. First, second,
and third grades are dismissed at 2:45pm. Fourth through eighth grades
are dismissed at 2:50pm.
Our rules and regulations, including important lunch procedures, can be found in resources. Thank you!

Prayer to Our Lady of Lourdes
O Mary, Mother of Mercy, health of the sick, refuge of sinners,
comforter of the suffering, you know our needs, our troubles, our sorrows.
Look with mercy on us.
By appearing at the Grotto of Lourdes,
you made it an honored sanctuary where you bestow your favors.
Many sufferers have obtained the cure of their ailments,
both spiritual and physical.
We come, therefore, with complete confidence to implore your
O loving Mother, we ask you to grant our requests.
With gratitude for your favors, we will endeavor to imitate your virtues
that we may one day share in your glory.

Let us all continue to remember that what is truly important is that we pray, not where we pray.
Prayer can be formal or informal, verbal or nonverbal,
active or contemplative. Prayer is communicating with God. Just as we
talk and share with our best friends what is happening in our lives, so
we talk and share with God. Just as we listen to our friends, so we
listen to God. As in human communication, our communication with God
can be expressed in a variety of ways. We communicate with God using
words and songs, in imagination and silence, and ritually or
spontaneously. We can pray in church, our gardens, our cars, or while in
the shower. We can also pray lying in bed, as the first thing we do
when we awake, and as the last thing we do as we drift off to sleep. One
of the characteristics of prayer we as Catholics believe is that with
the right intention every moment of the day all our hopes, works, joys,
and sufferings can become our prayer.See more at: http://www.loyolapress.com
