Welcome to the Community Page for the parish of Our Lady of Lourdes and St. Gregory’s.

Choir Workshops

We will hold several workshops for the choir members of Our Lady of Lourdes and St Gregory’s on the Monday evenings from 7:00pm to 9:00pm

These sessions will be led by Martin Barry, the Director of Music at Salford Cathedral, and are open to anyone with an interest in Church music.

Parish Mission

CaFE (Catholic Faith Exploration) will be leading a Parish Mission.  Please prepare for it by praying for ourselves and for all members of the parish, particularly those who have drifted away from Mass attendance.
