Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto


Over 100 years old, Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine is an outdoor sacred space located between the Parish Center and cemetery. Children still gather to pray the rosary during the school year and many people leave a candle burning when they finish their prayer.  

Surrounded by greenery and flowers in the summer, seating is available for quiet moments of meditation and prayer.  It is a "Four Seasons" place for prayer and all are welcome!

During Advent, as we prepare for the coming of the Savior, the parish celebrates CHRISTKINDL ABEND, German for "Evening of the Christ Child".  During this event small white lights adorn the pathways of the parish grounds and the grotto is bathed in blue.
