Our Lady of Lourdes

Welcome to the website of the Catholic community of Our Lady of Lourdes, Sawston which is 7 miles south of Cambridge, England.

Sawston has been an active centre of Catholicism in this region for a very long time. Sawston Hall was for many centuries the focal point of Catholic activity and remained steadfast during the troubled times of the Counter-Reformation.

The present Church building is over 50 years old (refurbished in 2010) and Sawston has had four resident parish priests. In 2007, our community became part of the large parish of Our Lady and the English Martyrs, Cambridge. After a Parish change in 2016, we welcomed Canon John Minh to his role with special responsibility for the Sawston Catholic community (and the Cambourne Catholic community).

OLOL is a friendly and enthusiastic community which celebrates its range of parishioners from young and old. It has a strong family ethos and many people have grown up through the Church to bring their own families along  in their married lives. There is a firm community spirit with all of the work in the community being done by volunteers. This has been most recently recognised by the creation of the Owen & Rigby Community. OLOL has many visitors throughout the year and we hope all feel welcome either at Mass or other celebrations.

We hope you find this website useful for any information you may be seeking. If you require any further information, please do use one of the contacts detailed on the site.
