Parish Priest: Father Anton Madej

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.

Although Sunday Masses are now being celebrated in parish churches, Redemptorist Publications is pleased to continue to offer Sunday Mass online, especially for those who cannot yet return to their parish church.
