    Faith Formation Kickoff - We will begin this year on Sunday, September 10th with all grades invited to Mass at 10:30 am. Immediately following the Mass we will have a Eucharistic Procession to the Parish Center, where we will spend time in prayer, have some refreshments, and review some details of the upcoming year. Attendance is mandatory, we can’t wait to see you there. We are also looking for special roles in the procession, Dads, we need capable men to help carry the canopy to protect the Eucharist. Girls, we need a couple of helpers, to spread rose petals on the streets for Jesus. We will also need altar servers and candle carriers. If you have any interest in making this Eucharistic Procession more special please reach out to Father Matt, Shannon, or Kellie-Jo. You can also email [email protected] and let us know how you want to be involved.

    We are looking for Faith Formation teachers and substitute teachers for the upcoming school year. If you have been Confirmed, love to share your faith, and enjoy working with youth, please consider joining us! You do not have to be an expert or a Theologian! If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Shannon and Kellie-Jo in the Faith Formation office or email them at [email protected]. We hope you join us!

  • RCIA 

    Right of Christian Initiation for Adults.

    Our parish is putting together a team for adults who may not have received their sacraments as children, or nonbaptized adults, who wish to become Catholic. RCIA will begin in September and will meet at the 9:00 AM Mass on Sunday mornings. After the Liturgy of the Word, our candidates will be dismissed to the basement of the church for a class that entails video and discussion. If you know of anyone who is interested in becoming Catholic or receiving the remainder of their sacraments, please speak to Fr. Matt or leave a message with Tracey.

  • Have faith in your child’s future

    Explore Catholic education at Our Lady of Lourdes school.  OLOL includes preschool-8th grade and is located at 52 First Street in Taunton. For more information, you can check our website at www.ololtaunton.com, or call us at 508- 822-3746.

  • Adoration Updates

    Our Adoration chapel at the parish center continues to be open Monday-Friday from 11am8pm unless otherwise noted. Please know that you are most welcome to come by and spend some time with our Lord. If you have never been to Adoration before and you are uncertain what to expect, just drop by for 5 minutes one day, say a prayer, and just be present with Him.
    You can stay as little or as long as you wish!

    What do I do in Adoration? You really don’t have to “do” anything during Adoration. You can just sit there and look at Jesus. Take the time to be with Him. If you are the only person in the chapel, don’t be afraid to pray or sing aloud. This is your personal time with Christ. (from CatholicLink)

    If you would like to cover that hour on a temporary or permanent basis, please contact Merle Coughlin or Tracey. Thank you!

    In an ever-changing world, the Holy Eucharist is a constant reminder of the great reality of God’s changeless love. - Mother Theresa

  • First Saturday 8am Mass

    Every First Saturday’s 8 AM Mass will be a “Community Mass.” For this Mass, we will open it to multiple Mass intentions instead of being designated for 1 family’s intention. Because of this, no stipend will be accepted for the intentions being prayed for at that Mass. We understand that the regular Mass intentions tend to fill up rapidly, so we hope that this option will allow those who were unable to get a Mass for a loved one to have the opportunity to have them remembered

  • HFMen

    Holy Family Men will be taking the month of August off - we will reconvene September 14th 2023 - hope to see you there!
