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.

HELP CLEAN YOUR CHURCH!

Your church needs you

HELP CLEAN YOUR CHURCH at Clayton.
PLEASE consider sparing one and a half hours of your time? 

We keep asking BUT as yet no response! 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.

Contact Sharon in the office or Rosalind Hartley on 07710117789.
