About Our Lady, Rottingdean
The Church in a Garden
The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, Queen of Peace in Rottingdean was consecrated on 10 September 1958. The parish consists of the residential areas of Rottingdean, Saltdean and Ovingdean and now shares its priest with St Patrick's in Woodingdean.
Our Lady of Lourdes is a thriving parish where you will be welcomed and encouraged to share or participate in the life of the Catholic Church. There are many groups, activities or social events to get involved in.
We are blessed with a Catholic school and a convent. Both provide safe places where we can encounter Christ and learn to be loved by Him.
Mass and prayer is central to our life as we try to grow in union with Christ and His Church. You will always be welcome to share in this life with us.
Please make yourself known to the parish priest Fr. Kevin O'Donnell or one of the faithful if you are new to the parish.
God bless you.
For a detailed history of the Church until 2001, see the book by Douglas d'Enno, The Church in a Garden published in that year.
