My Dear Family of Our Lady of Lourdes,

Our 24hr Grotto Webcam is live!

Now you can visit Our Lady and your parish family at the Grotto any time through your mobile device or computer. Just add our webpage,, to your favorites or home screen. The “Live Grotto” logo can be found in “Highlights” just under “Word from the Pastor”. You can even shrink it on your computer screen and leave it open in a little window as you work throughout the day. One of our parish family members told me that when she visits the site and sees people praying at the Grotto she joins them in prayer and intercedes for their intention. How wonderful! What power in our prayer!

Speaking of powerful prayer, also under “Highlights” on the website is our new “Holy Hour” icon. Click here and you will be able to sign up for your Holy Hour and see where coverage is most needed. For those of us already signed up, we can volunteer to be substitutes when someone is away or sick and ask for help to cover our hour when we are sick or away. It’s easy to use and I am sure that it will be a great help in bringing this community of prayer together.

I want to thank Atimo for their work throughout this past year on our website. It is beautiful and has become a powerful tool for us and our ministries. Please spread the word and invite everyone to join us at and keep tuned. You can also download the Our Lady of Lourdes Miami app from either the Apple Store or Google Play!
