Ladies of Lourdes
The image if Our Lady of Lourdes is one of gentleness, humility and prayer. She is the instrument through which Our Lord sends His message of Divine healing and mercy. In her apparitions, Our Lady of Lourdes asks St Bernadette to come each day to the grotto and pray. St Bernadette is an example of the faith and prayer, made evident with the spring of healing water.
As Ladies of Lourdes of St Stephen Martyr, it is our mission to become Bernadettes by praying for those in need of healing and by supporting one another in the ministry to the sick. Our ministry takes us to the nursing home within our parish boundaries each month to visit and bring Christ to the residents by word and sacrament. Those interested in the ministry call 202-785-0982.
