ABOUT OUR LADY OF LOURDES
Our Lady of Lourdes Church was established in Mineral Wells in 1906. The original site of the church has been changed over the years due to the constant growth of the area. The present church was built in 1936 by Father Patrick Gallagher, and was a mission of St. Stephens Church in Weatherford. In 1958 Our Lady of Lourdes became a parish church. Father John J. Nagle was the first pastor and remained until his retirement in 1998. We were very blest to have the services of such a wonderful priest for 40 years!
On January 10, 1999, the new 10,000 square foot Worship Center was completed. The old church is now referred to as the Chapel where Saturday evening Mass of Anticipation, daily Mass, Weddings and Baptisms are performed and the Blessed Sacrament is reposed.
On August 1, 2010, Father Balaji Boyalla became our new pastor, having previously been the Assistant Pastor of Holy Family Church in Fort Worth, Texas. We welcome Father Balaji into the OLL family and look forward to having him at Our Lady of Lourdes for many years to come.
In August, 2014, pews were added to the "Worship Center" which is now the Church. Construction is under way for our new Church Hall which is estimated to complete in October, 2014.
