DUE TO THE COVID-19 (Coronavirus) POTENTIAL HEALTH THREAT: EFFECTIVE MONDAY, MARCH 16, THE THOMPSON CENTER ON LOURDES WILL CLOSE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

The Thompson Center on Lourdes wants you to know that your health and safety are top of mind. We want to ensure that when you come to the Thompson Center on Lourdes you have a positive experience – whether for a program / activity in wellness, education or social. Due to COVID-19 and the population that we serve we will be suspending activities / programs for an undetermined time. This was a hard decision to make, but your health and safety are our highest priority.

We want you to be aware of the basic protective measures you can take related to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak. The World Health Organization (www.who.int) offers the following guidelines:
