Dear Friends,

“And behold I am with you always, to the end of the world.”  Matthew 28:20

Seventeen years ago it seemed like the end of the world, especially to those who lost loved ones in the terror attacks upon our nation.  The world was forever changed by the ruthless hatred of evil men.  We know that good will triumph over evil, that our Savior Jesus Christ has won for us salvation and will win the final victory over the powers of darkness. In the meantime, we struggle on as disciples of Christ bearing our crosses as He did. 

As we begin our new year at Our Lady of Lourdes, we lift up in prayer all our great students, faculty, school staff and families that make this school a beacon of light in a world engulfed so often in darkness. Just think for a minute, of the students in our care who will one day be the future leaders in government, military, social workers, first responders, businesses, churches, and families…future heroes!  

We are filled with hope and gratitude for the little part that we play in preparing them for their future vocations..and our future with them. 

May God bless the whole Lourdian community as we prepare a new generation of leaders to make our world a much better place guided by the Light of the Gospel.

Yours in Christ,

Father Thomas Lutz
