A Message from our Principal

Today is the Memorial of Our Lady of Lourdes. In 1854, Pope Pius IX declared the dogma of the Immaculate Conception that Mary, the mother of Jesus, was born without sin. Four years later in 1858, the Mother of our Lord appeared to a young, French girl in Lourdes, France. This was the first of 18 visits by Our Lady. Her message was to call sinners to a change of heart. Our Lady told Bernadette to dig in the dirt and drink of the stream. This water from the stream may have cured over 5000 people. Less than 100 of them have been declared miraculous by the Catholic Church. Over 2 million people visit Lourdes each year to join in a procession. We can know always that we have a Mother to help us and lead us to her Son, Jesus.


Peace in Christ,

Dr. John Shreve
