Happy Birthday, Our Lady of Lourdes!
For fifty years, Our Lady of Lourdes School has served as the premier provider of Catholic education in northern Pinellas County. While our campus and classrooms have changed greatly since 1962, our mission and purpose have remained the same.
Teaching as Christ did, we are the living example of the Parable of the Lost Sheep. We exist to educate every child individually and empower him or her with the knowledge and faith to go out and be Christ’s hands and feet in our world.
As we celebrate the blessing of our Golden Jubilee, we would like to extend an invitation to all parishioners, families, former students, and friends to join us in a year of jubilant festivities.
