The Missionaries respond to the concerns surrounding the building of a Grotto in honor of Our Lady...
Our Lady of Lourdes Responds Many have expressed concerns about the building of our Grotto as a place of prayer.

Due to the generosity of many benefactors, we have purchased
(the mortgage for the church building was retired on Feb 9) and refurbished a beautiful church under the patronage ofOur Lady of Lourdes.Although there are still many things to be done in the church (e.g., restoring most of the stained
glass windows, restoring the bell tower and bells, and refurbishing the kitchen), we now need to build the Blessed Mother of God a special cave or grotto that will call to mind that sacred apparition
site in Lourdes, France. For how can one have a church dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes without a Grotto? What a blessing it would be for future parishioners and passersby if they could pray not only
in our chapel before the Tabernacle, but also visit an outdoor shrine with a niche for Our Lady... a sort of tabernacle on earth for the Blessed Mother. Thus, we have initiated the first phase of a
new capital campaign to serve three ends: building the Grotto, to help us finish the work in the church as well as pay off and develop our new property (at 1111-1113 Amsterdam Road) to improve
parking and provide additional housing for the Missionaries. If you want your donation to be used for the Grotto only, please indicate that along with the donation (e.g., writing "Grotto" in the memo
line).Help Us Give Honor to the Highest Honor of Our Race.
Help the Fathers build something beautiful for Our Lord and His Mother.
Although it is best to use a check, we do accept donations through paypal...
