Service throughout Lourdes

November 21, 2018
By Vikki Pynenburg

Service is a way of life here at Lourdes!

When we are doing service, we are loving God, our family, and our neighbors

Service helps us become faith-filled people and gives us the opportunity to demonstrate compassion, consideration, and respect for others. Service is incorporated into the school culture, ensuring that students learn the value of serving others in our local and global communities. Each class participates in a service project that serves our local or global community.  

Student Annual Service Hours

5th grade       5 service hours
6th grade     10 service hours 
7th grade     20 service hours
8th grade     30 service hours

5th through 8th grade students have Service Journals to reflect in and keep track of their service work throughout the year. All service forms and reflections are kept in these journals. Students will carry their journal with them through these four years and will be able to see all the service they have accomplished.

Design the new Lancers Mascot!

Mascot competition poster
The Lancers mascot is here to stay but we are looking for a new image - please enter the competition and create the Lourdes Lancer image. If drawing/sketching/designing is not your top talent, don't worry, draw what you can and we will have a designer complete a final rendering if yours is the winner. So don't be shy, we want to see your creation; the competition is open to parishioners, alumni, families, students and staff. The rules can be seen online or printed by the Development Office. You have until November 16th to turn in your art, either on paper or digitally. We are steering away from the weapons aspect of a Lancer, and focusing on the characteristics. 
For inspiration, here are Christie Walker's words: "A Lancer may have been chosen to represent that the students are defenders of the Christian faith, they are loyal to Christ and their community, and steadfast when it comes to overcoming obstacles. The armor Lancers wear would represent the Armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-18). The lance (Sword of the Spirit) being a symbol of the Lord's truth, their education, and their faith."
