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.

Adam here, I hope that you are all enjoying the sunny weather. It has been tremendously hot here in Kent.

Our 28th Live Streamed Mass was this morning. Updates this week include information concerning the re-opening of our church next week. As always there is the Newsletter and Father Anton's weekly column.

Our streamed Mass on Tuesday 11th August at 7pm will be our final midweek streamed Mass for the time being.

The Church will be open on Wednesday for prayer from 6.30 pm until 7.30 pm.

Please note there will be no streamed Mass on the weekend of 22nd and 23rd August.

From the weekend of the 29th and 30th August we will be streaming one of the weekend Masses live - with updates via school, on the parish website, in the newsletter, and from Fr Anton.

Thank you once again to all 110 of the newsletter subscribers.

Kenelm Youth Trust Adventure Holidays at Alton Castle

This summer, why not experience a staycation like no other? At Alton Castle, we can offer action-packed, outdoor family holidays, where you get to stay in our beautiful 19th century, Pugin designed castle. Surrounded by the beauty of the Churnet Valley, riddled with an historic past, a stay at the castle is a unique experience. Stays are from Mondays to Fridays - check-in is from 4pm Monday and check-out is no later than 10am on the Friday.

All of our stays are COVID-19 secure. Your family can hire a floor of the castle all to yourselves, socially distancing from our staff and activities instructors, so that you can relax and enjoy your holiday in your social bubble.
