* From April to August 2022, the relics of Saint Bernadette will tour the United States for the first time, bringing the grace of Lourdes to parishes across the country.
IN 1858, Mary appeared at Lourdes, France to a young girl, Bernadette Soubirous. Her prayerful fidelity, and a miraculous spring whose waters have brought about physical and spiritual healings of many who have visited the Shrine.
The relics of St. Bernadette are touring the USA and we are fortunate to have her visit our Our Lady of Lourdes Church. We wanted to go to Lourdes but were stopped by the pandemic, so St. Bernadette is coming to us! We know this visit will be time of spiritual healing for us all.

* A commemorative book celebrating OLOL's 100th Anniversary is being created. This book will include the church history, historic photos, current photos, feature our church groups and celebratory events. We need your help! First, we have a very small group of volunteers but we can use additional help. We are seeking anyone who has an interest in preparing the book and moderate computer skills. The book will be published through Entourage Yearbooks who provides start up training, online tutorial videos, and design help. If you want to become involved, please call Bernadette Olson at (732) 991-6359. Second, we are very interested in older photos that could be included in the book. We have some photos from the laying of the cornerstone of the church and the school. If you have any photos that you think would add to OLOL's story, please scan the photo and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
