Parish Council

Is the voice of the parish. We try to anticipate the needs of the parish and assist Deacon Dan. As Our Lady of Lourdes parish grows and changes, the council tries to update and meet the spritual needs of the parish. We would love to hear form you if you have any ideas or thoughts. Meet the council HERE. Please feel free to email

"I grew up in a small family Catholic church in the Tampa Bay area. Family and faith are very important to me. When I moved to Melbourne for school then work I was concerned I would not find a church that felt like home. I have been so blessed to have found OLL."
