Welcome to Lourdes Parish, Earlwood
This parish comprises of two churches – St Bernadette’s, Clemton Park & Our Lady of Lourdes, Earlwood. This is a welcoming, supportive community of believers inspired by the life of Jesus. We are called to make Christ present in our parish, in our local community and in our world.
Our mission is to know Christ and to make Him known; to be a community committed to discovering Christ present in each person through our ministry to each other, our service to the wider community, the joyful celebration of the Eucharist and other sacraments, and our active concern for social justice.
We have a large parish with over 300 parishioners and many ministries, such as the catechist program involving parishioners providing religion classes to Catholic pupils in local public schools.
Lourdes Parish runs a successful parish-based sacramental program. The parent’s involvement in the preparation of each sacrament of Reconciliation, Communion and Confirmation proves to be an opportunity to walk together with their children on their spiritual journey.
