A great deal of strategic planning and prayerful discernment have informed a path forward for Lourdes Academy and the Oshkosh parishes. Today, the pastors at Most Blessed Sacrament, St. Jude the Apostle and St. Raphael the Archangel are joined by Lourdes leadership, Bishop David Ricken, and the Catholic Foundation for the Diocese of Green Bay in their commitment to the future of the Catholic community in Oshkosh.
Since the 1800s, Catholic education has been supported by generations of loyal parents, alumni, and dedicated community members. These past generations understood the important role Catholic education plays in growing the Catholic faith in our community. Now, we have an opportunity to continue that tradition by investing in the future of our Catholic school and parishes. It is now our turn to ensure the next generation of Lourdes Academy students has access to these same blessings and opportunities.
