The Joy of the Gospel (Evangelii Gaudium) is the long-awaited teaching of Pope Francis on the proclamation of the Gospel. Pope Francis is calling upon the Church and the world with encouragement to begin a new chapter in evangelization. This dynamic document is written in the plain, everyday language that the pope has become famous for.
Thank you for visiting Our Lady of Lourdes faith community online.
Our Lady of Lourdes is a unique community in that we truly try to put our faith into action. We love the God we cannot see by loving the neighbor we can. We call this "Justice Ministry". We are all at different places in our faith journey, yet we all strive to grow into a deeper relationship with God. We are a community that respects our diversity, each member bringing his or her gifts and talents to build the Kingdom of God here in Daytona Beach.
o be involved, not only at church, but in the greater community. I invite you to become active in one of our many ministries in our parish as part of your journey into closer relationship with God. Here at Our Lady of Lourdes, we have a team of dedicated, caring ministers ready to assist you in living out your faith.
I give thanks to God for sending you to our community and invite you to join us at one of our Masses this weekend. We welcome you to our family and hope you will say "Yes" to becoming another worker in His vineyard with us.
If I can assist you in any way, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to seeing you very soon.
Many blessings to you,
Fr. Phil Egitto
