Our Lady of Lourdes Church Dedication February 11, 1982  (Florida), No Author Stated
11 No Author Stated Our Lady of Lourdes Church Dedication February 11, 1982 (Florida)
Florida Our Lady of Lourdes Church 1981 Soft Cover Very Good 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
Very nice, clean booklet commemorating the dedication of the new Our Lady of Lourdes Church. Only fault is a flat crease to lower front corner of cover. Oddly, there is no reference to the exact town in Florida where it's located, but there is a photo of the presiding Bishop of Orlando, Thomas J. Grady. This is an exceptional keepsake thanks to the many photographs, including some in full color, plus lots of photos of the parishioners in action. There's also history and a roster of the patrons who helped make the new church possible. As always with these momentos, there are ads at the back of the book, but they aren't overwhelming. Some of these have more ads than content but this isn't one of them. Book measures 8-1/2" x 11".
