Our Lady of Lourdes is a Fairtrade Parish and a LiveSimply Parish.


We are a happy, vibrant and committed Catholic parish – one that tries to make everyone feel special, whether they be a visitor just calling in, attending a family event, a person wishing to find out a little more about the family of God or someone not committed in any way.

Whatever the reason, whatever your circumstances, You are welcome.

If you have a question, please ask.
