Bags of Compassion

How often do we see people on the street holding signs and asking for help or laying on the street covered with makeshift blankets? We are called as a Christian people to respond, but knowing how to do that can sometimes be difficult. This Lent, you are invited to participate in the parish-wide initiative, "Bags of Compassion" as Our Lady of Lourdes takes an active role in responding to homelessness. We will be collecting the following items for the bags:

  • Calf-length crew socks
  • Travel toothbrush/toothpaste
  • Deodorant
  • Granola bars
  • Bottles of water
  • Hard candy
  • Bars of soap (will be collected by school families)
  • Compact rain ponchos

Drop off for donations are available at any of these locations:

  • Gathering Space in church
  • Faith Formation office in the OLL school
  • Collection box in St. Bernadette Annex
  • Chapel in POC

We have also created an Amazon Wish List for anyone who would rather shop online!.  Please click on the link to find the items:  For monetary giving, there will be a donation box in the Gathering space. Thank you!
