Our Lady of Lourdes Golden Jubilee

Charity description

Our Lady of Lourdes Golden Jubilee logo
On November 1st, 2015 we celebrated the Golden Jubilee of the opening of our church with a Mass celebrated by our Bishop, Richard Moth.
The intervening years have seen many developments in the way we celebrate our faith and how we use the facilities.
After half-a-century the building is long overdue major maintenance work in some areas. The parish has enthusiastically backed a plan to undertake a programme of works to create a space of greater reverence and beauty in line with our present liturgical needs, and to rejuvenate and renew the community space ready for the next generation.

Our Golden Jubilee Appeal has as at the 50th anniversary of the opening of the building raised £180,000. This has exceeded our original 2015 target of £135,000 and puts us well on the way to ultimate target of £250,000 by the end of 2017. We have now reviewed our original plan and made some revisions. We are now also planning to renew entrance to the building - the narthex. Our new fundraising target is £375,000. This will both complete the works and ensure that we retain sufficient Parish reserves to complete other planned and unplanned repair works in the coming years.
