Despite the heat, Fr David completed the course, running the 2018 London Marathon in aid of the Catholic Children's Society (Westminster). You can still support him here.


Fr David is running the London Marathon on Sunday 22 April in aid of Catholic Children's Society (Westminster). You can support him here. And if you take any photos of him running, send them to us and we'll put them up on the website!

I am very pleased to say that Fr Andrew Bowden has been appointed as our new assistant priest, beginning at the start of December. Fr Andrew was ordained last year in Enfield Town and has been working as a chaplain at Westminster Cathedral. I’m so pleased he is coming to us and I know he will receive a very warm welcome. I look forward to a long and fruitful ministry for Fr Andrew here at Our Lady of Lourdes!

This annual event takes place on Wednesday 28th November to raise awareness of Christians persecuted for their faith. There will be a second collection at Mass today.  Thank you.

Next week our parish will take up the annual collection to support the sick and retired priests of the Diocese of Westminster. Your generous donation helps ensure that these priests, having followed their vocation and given their lives to the Church, are cared for and supported when they are sick and when they retire. The Sick & Retired Priests’ Fund helps cover the medical, housing, convalescence, and personal needs of these priests, as well as helping them in an emergency. They have been here for us; let us be there for them. Donation leaflets are available in the back of the church today. Please take one home, read about this important work, and bring it back next weekend with your donation. Please continue to pray for the wellbeing of all of our clergy: active, retired and ill. You can donate online anytime at
