Parish Priest: Father Anton Madej

Father Anton Medej, SCJ

I belong to the Congregation of the Priests of the Sacred Heart of Betharram. Betharram is a small village and shrine to Our Lady about nine miles outside of Lourdes.  Many people have heard of the Grottos of Betharram, but not so many about the shrine where our founder St Michael Garicoits brought our Congregation into being.

Your church needs you

We keep asking for volunteer to help clean our Church
PLEASE would some kind parishioners volunteer to help with the Church cleaning? Just one session every six weeks (about 1- 1+ hrs.) is all we ask.

If nobody is willing then the present teams will have to clean every five weeks, instead of six!
We are SO grateful to those who help at the moment, some with little children, some who work, others who are elderly of with health problems.

Volunteers, speak to Sharon in the office or telephone Rosalind Hartley 07710117789 and you will be surprised how good you feel!!


Help Our Lady & St Werburgh’s school win £20,000!

Aldi is giving 20 primary schools the chance to win £20,000. The school simply has to collect stickers from Aldi (1 sticker per £30 spent in store) in order to enter. If anyone in the Parish shops at Aldi, please ask for these stickers at the till, and hand them in at Church or at the School.
