Welcome to Lourdes & Pope Paul VI Parish Scholarships (New Families)

Welcome to Lourdes Parish Scholarship (New Families)

Our Lady of Lourdes Parish Community has maintained a commitment to Catholic Education from its founding in 1959. As part of the parish community’s ongoing support of Catholic schooling, we offer the Welcome to Lourdes Parish Scholarship. Families new to our community become scholarship eligible when they affirm their intent to become committed members of the parish, evidenced by:

  • registering as members of the parish community,
  • becoming actively involved in a parish ministry from time of enrollment, and
  • participating in the offertory program (envelopes or online via Faith Direct).


First-time parents who choose to commit to the above and enroll their children in the parish school are eligible to receive a scholarship for the academic year 2020-21 in the amount of $1091 per qualifying family (parent/legal guardian with a child in the school).

Pope Paul VI Family Parish Scholarship

“Thus the little domestic Church, like the greater Church, needs to be constantly and intensely evangelized: hence its duty regarding permanent education in the faith…the family, like the Church, ought to be a place where the Gospel is transmitted and from which the Gospel radiates…the future of evangelization depends in great part on the Church of the home” (John Paul II, Familiaris Consortio nn 51-52)

Any family with more than one student concurrently registered or enrolled and will be attending Our Lady of Lourdes Elementary School may qualify.
