Parish Priest - Our Lady and St Werburgh

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.

Coronavirus Christmas Concerts - 29/11/2020

Our little people are very well versed with the rules in place to help to keep the Coronavirus away. One local primary school is going ahead with the Nativity Play which will be filmed so that parents and grandparents can see their darlings perform. Some changes as a result of the virus could be:

  • The Inn Keeper: ‘Sorry, we are closed due to the virus.’
  • The Angel to the Shepherds: ‘Remember Hands, Face, Space and leave the gifts outside the stable.’
  • Joseph will have to remain outside the stable until the moment just before Baby Jesus arrives.
  • The Three Kings will not be allowed to travel out of Tier 3 just yet.
