About the Parish

YOU are very welcome to our Parish. Our vision is:

To be a welcoming, active and outgoing Parish community which recognises and benefits from our God-given gifts and talents, empowering each one of us, individually and collectively,  to spread the Good News to  others, whilst deepening our own relationship with Christ our brother, irrespective of the point we are at on our journey.

A Personal Welcome from Canon Anthony Dwyer

Welcome to the website of Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Harpenden, which, I hope, provides you with a sense of the faith and life of our parish. You will discover that we are a friendly, active and welcoming community who are striving to follow Jesus Christ.

As a faith community our hope is that by loving God, through our worship and prayer; and by loving our neighbour, through our concern and what we do for others, we may wholeheartedly live the call to be disciples, as together, we seek to know and love Jesus Christ.

I hope that this website, not only tells you something about our parish, but that it also serves as an invitation to you to come and share in our life of faith.
